At the beginning of June it looked like that summer temperatures would hinder the spread of the coronavirus disease in Slovenia. Alas, by the beginning of July the governmental restrictive orders had been again put into place; Covid-19 started to spread again and the promise of a lively cultural and music scene had been annulled.
However, several artists, cultural organizations and venues all around Slovenija decided to unite under the same umbrella entitled “We are #open for culture!“, a project through which they intend to communicate the importance of culture and art in peoples lives. Between the beginning of July and the end of August, more than a hundred free events ranging from cinema, music, literature, talks to theatre will take place.
The program in Ljubljana runs between Thursday and Sunday at the Slovenian Cinematheque‘s open-air cinema located at the very centre of the Museum platform. Organizers have smartly divided it into two halves, preventing the events to be overcrowded as the current epidemiological situation forbids more than a hundred people to be present.
In case you want to sit on the chair within the “official” space, you will need to provide your name, surname and current residence to enable easier tracking of a potential coronavirus cluster in case someone already infected attended the event. I prefer sitting on the other side of the fence. The slightly leaned surface is overgrown with grass so you can sit normally and enjoy the program. I suggest bringing your own drinks and snacks.
