PLASTO-PRINT
Workshop of printing on plastic bags. Used plastic bags are first collected (this can be started at school) and then "ironed" into a larger surface area, which is used to print on. In such a way plastic bags are converted into artworks, whilst learning about recycling and an appropriate attitude towards the environment. The plasto-print products can be assembled into an installation, hence promoting learning about another field of contemporary art. The exhibition in the Gallery serves as inspiration for the creative process. The workshops are conducted by Nika Rupnik.

Summer in Tivoli

The Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature Project

Sunday guided tour of the exhibition
Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature in English and Slovenian, conducted by Matic Ferlan
Sunday, July 29, at 3 pm

The Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature project, by which the Švicarija Creative Centre is being introduced into the cultural life of the capital, derives from three basic elements that have marked the history of the building: community, art and nature. The project consists of an exhibition and supplementary exhibition programme inspired by the building that actualises the history of Švicarija, in such a way providing the guidelines for its activities in the future.

The multifaceted exhibition consists of four sections: HistoryThe Stojan Batič Memorial StudioArchitecture and Art. The exhibition takes us through the history and social life of the building, it presents us with activities of the artists in it and highlights its recent renovation. These sections are connected by the artwork
