The AIR Celeia programme has been up and running since 2005. The programme encourages the development and promotion of the contemporary artistic and curatorial practices and is based on open dialogue, exchange and cooperation. It is conceived as a two-month residency for international artists and curators. The residency comes with a fee to the artist, space and time, as well as other structural conditions for artists to take on in-depth research, to develop and implement projects, on their own or in a group. It acquaints and connects its residents with local artistic goings-on, as well as those further afield.
AIR Celeia residents have the opportunity to present their work in an exhibition venue run by the Centre for Contemporary Arts, which can take the form of a lecture, discussion, performance or exhibition. Selections are based on open calls and invitations.

With 50.000 inhabitants Celje is the third largest town in Slovenia. It is the development, business, economic, trade, cultural, educational, administrative, health care, sport facility and fair centre of the Savinja region. Taking into account its smallness the town has an extremely lively and fluent art scene. As it is situated merely an hour from the capital city of Ljubljana, and is one of the most representative institutions for the production and display of contemporary visual arts in Slovenia, the Centre represents a creative hub devoted to arts, culture and theory, and is experienced in the specific conditions of the current social, political, and economic situation. Under the auspices of the City Council of Celje and its Cultural Department, the Centre has been actively engaged in the project-based cultural programming in cooperation with partners across the region and beyond.
