It’s again time for Šiška Open, the urban activities and music day, to take over the square in front of Kino Šiška!
In addition to creative, musical, sports and dance activities, we’ll speed up the cultural pulse of the city with no fewer than two exhibition openings, then put a cherry on top with evening gigs by two promising young bands, Plateau and Masaž.
We’re preparing Friday’s afternoon activities in cooperation with the various cultural, dance and youth organizations that coshape the cultural pulse of Šiška and the city of Ljubljana. You’ll be able to spend a creative afternoon in front of Kino Šiška at the Mladi Zmaji music production workshop or the GUMB Association’s creative recycling workshop, head on a graffiti tour of the neighbourhood with the Institute for Urban Issues, and attend a graffiti street art workshop. You’ll also be able to compete in pingpong and foosball tournament, or watch the freestyle cypher by the Nataraj Dance School. Towards the evening, we’ll open two exhibitions – Y? at our Kamera Gallery and the Tresk festival visual awards at the neighbouring Computer Museum. We’ll round off the day with a gig by this year’s Špil Liga winners, the funky groovers Masaž, and their league compatriots Plateau.
