Slovenia on the Global Music Map

Peter Baroš

Slovenian musicians and bands have a colourful history of international success in the music industry. But before such success becomes a topic of nostalgia, SIGIC's Peter Baroš tells of new initiatives helping today's music acts reach for the stars hanging over the global music map.

Osmo/za is a collaborative space at the 8th floor of the Avtotehna 1960s skyscraper building at Slovenska 54 in the very centre of Ljubljana. It was set up in 2017 by a consortium of three NGO art/cultural producers with a rich and varied history: Ljudmila engages in the development and popularisation of open culture, free licences and software, and in new ways of data distribution; Delak Institute is a production house exploring post-gravity art and outlining a path for space culturalisation; the Projekt Atol Institute's activities range from art production to scientific research and technological prototype development and production.

The Rebirth of Industrial Spaces through the Prism of Culture and Creativity

Tea Pristolič

From London and Paris to Berlin and Amsterdam, if we mention only Europe, some of the best contemporary museums and galleries are set in former industrial buildings, taking advantage of vast spaces, preserving cultural heritage and giving back to people what they had been creating before in a different manner.

Slovenia stepped on this path in the early 2000s and is committed to renovating, rebuilding and breathing new life into such buildings. Through revitalisation, cities, townships and private organisations are transforming these sites and structures into places that offer platforms for creative industries. However, the means towards this goal and the results vary distinctively.

Audiovisual Training and Networking

Sabina Briški Karlić

The cultural and creative sectors (CCS), including film and audiovisual, have been amongst the hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis, which has also accelerated the existing trends in AV training and capacity building. The Motovila team explored how three Creative Europe co-funded AV training programmes for project development (with important connections to Slovenia) have been dealing with the sudden changes and effects imposed by the turbulent events of 2020.
