Festival of Contemporary Arts – City of Women

XXII. International Festival of Contemporary Arts – City of Women 

Dear all, October is near!

With great pleasure we announce pre-festival event where we will present the programme of this year’s 22ndFestival edition.

Instead of classic press conference, we are preparing a picnic, where we will create festival badges, co-create festival mobile installation of ČIPke collective, eat some nice food and present the festival’s contents.

We will welcome you in Rog on September 27th from 5 pm onwards!*


Here we share some names that will mark October in Ljubljana:

Simone Aughterlony, Rosana Cade, Marcia Farquhar, Tania El Khoury, Ria Hartley, Dina Rončević, artists from the FyraBen collective and others. Slovenian artists Kaja Lorenci, Maja Smrekar, Olja Grubić & Živa Petrič will premiere their works at the festival. Film programme will offer unique encounters with late director Chantal Akerman; we will also host her yearlong collaborator Claire Atherton. Even before the British premiere we will screen Terence Davies’ A Quiet Passion, a subtle homage to American poet Emily Dickinson. Performances, installations and projections will interweave with several talks, lectures, workshops and gatherings.

Follow City of Women, city of women is following you!
