AiR Celeia Celje

Celeia Celje - The Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA Celeia)

Description 

Run by the Celeia Celje Institute - Centre for Contemporary Arts since 2005, the AiR Celeia Celje Artist-in-Residence programme for international artists and curators is based on inter-disciplinarity and participation, with the aim of building a dialogue and cooperation between foreign and local artists and curators as well as between art and the broader community.

The programme is conceived in a way that encourages artists in residence to create ties and actively participate in the local community, as well as enable local artists to work in a foreign environment. This provides them with new contacts and new models of production and presentation. The residency programme is based on mobility, inter-disciplinarity, participation, and builds a dialogue and cooperation between artists as well as between art and the broader community.

Outcome 

Resident artists receive an opportunity to present their work publicly at the CCA CELEIA as lectures, projections, public discussions, exhibitions and performances. They are also encouraged to realise their work in the public spaces of Celje and its sourounding .

Location 

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.
