In July at MGLC and the Švicarija Creative Centre

We have taken care to pamper the body and spirit in the city park this year too, given that the Summer in Tivoli traditionally fills the warm and carefree summer evenings with a rich array of cultural events. The Summer in Tivoli programme is woven between Tivoli Mansion and the Švicarija Creative Centre, where you can enjoy music by singer-songwriters and music evenings of electronic and hybrid music, art events and guided tours, as well as a cycle of films, whose leitmotif is the creation of bridges between individuals and the community, as well as community, art and nature.

21.30–23.00: Les Ogres
2015, French

The story tells about travelling actors who move from city to city. The plot narrates the imminent birth of a child and the return of a former lover, opening up old wounds that were thought to be forgotten.

In July, the Sundays in Ljubljana are a little bit different. In the evening we meet up at the forest border of the city, in the legendary Švicarija. First, we make a toast, symbolically reinforcing the group spirit, and then we abandon ourselves to an outdoor film screening. Each film is special, in keeping with the energy of this magical space. Followed by a social digestive. Intoxicated by art, we focus on satisfying our basic human needs; the need for food, drink, safety, company and love.
Selection: Jan Cvitkovič, film director.

Admission to the David Lynch exhibition: 5 EUR/2.50 EUR. The exhibition STOP AND GO – The  Art of Animated GIFs, public guided tour of the exhibition Švicarija: Community, Art and Nature, concerts, performance and films are free of charge.
