OPENING OF THE WRITERS’ HUB- New coworking space in Ljubljana

2nd Forget Heritage Project Information Day in Slovenia

25th October 2018, Vodnik’s Homestead - Vodnikova cesta 65, Ljubljana

The 2nd Slovene Forget Heritage Project Information Day will be held in Ljubljana on 25th October 2018. It will be dedicated to the (official) Opening of the Writers’ Hub for Vodnik’s heritage preservation, a new coworking space for young authors in the field of literature.

Regional Development Agency of the Ljubljana Urban Region (RRA LUR), partner in the project, and Divja misel, Manager of Vodnik’s Homestead and Pilot Manager of the Writers’ Hub, were working closely with the City of Ljubljana, the owner of the cultural heritage building, in setting up the new coworking space. In August 2018, after necessary infrastructure works and purchase of the ICT equipment (RRA LUR acquired funding under the Forget Heritage project), the coworking space was ready to receive first residents.

In the first year of operation of the Writers’ Hub a support programme for young people from the age of 15 to 29 years will also be implemented – workshops, a mentoring programme and various presentation events of the participants of the programme.

The first two workshops, designed to support the creativity of young authors in the field of literature, have already taken place, the third "Workshop of song writing basics" takes place these days. At the opening one will be able to listen to the first residents of the coworking space, the translated texts of young artists (mentor: Petra Meterc, translator) and a short stage presentation of the non-dramatic literary work (mentors: Žiga Divjak and Katarina Morano, directors) that emerged from the first workshops.
