The programme is quite diverse, with some of the typical events being regular Sunday plays and storytellings for children, evening discussions with writers, poets, translators and film-makers, workshops and various exhibitions of contemporary visual art and comics, and so on. There was, for example, an exhibition dedicated to the 70th anniversary of Ciciban, a cult Slovene magazine for children. The Vodnik Homestead cooperates with and hosts various protagonists from the literary field, among them the I.D.I.O.T Group and Slovene Writers’ Association.
Along the lines of a Divja misel Institute project called the Knjižnica pod krošnjami (Library under the Treetops), the homestead also has a place where one can come and read. Furthermore, there are also facilities available for aspiring writers to do their work.
In 2018 Stripolis, a comic book retailer moved to Vodnik Homestead from Pritličje to continue its activities in a pop-up manner.
History and background
From mid-eighteenth century until the 1930s, the manor house actually functioned as a tavern. At the end of 1970s it was bought by the Municipality of Ljubljana and used for various purposes – it used to be a dislocated unit of the Šiška Library and has hosted various small performances (puppetry, theatre) and workshops, a visual arts programme and programmes for various marginal groups.
From 2012 to 2015 the Vodnik Homestead was managed by the Hanna's Atelier for Sonorous Arts, which established there a Centre for Sonorous Arts. Since 2001 it is a cultural monument of local significance.
