Španski borci Culture Centre reopened in November 2009 in the Ljubljana-Moste neighbourhood of the eastern part of the city. The centre is run by En-Knap Productions, as such it presents the largest facility intended for cultural activities in Slovenia managed by a non-governmental organisation. Providing a much-needed performing space in Ljubljana as well as two rehearsal spaces, the centre's programme focuses primarily on performing arts, however it also cover the areas of music, visual arts, literature, and offers a children's programme alongside. The centre also includes a reading room, a mediatheque, a coffee shop, and a gallery.

As the permanent residence of the EnKnapGroup (EKG) and one of the venues of the Gibanica (Moving Cake) Festival of Slovene Dance, the Španski borci Culture Centre has become the seat of the new Centre of Contemporary Dance, according to the agreement signed by the Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Ljubljana in June 2011.


The centre functions as a permanent rehearsal and performing space for the contemporary dance group EnKnapGroup (EKG), which has presented its latest performances 10 Min East [10 min vzhodno] (2009), 10 Min South [10 min južno] (2010), and Beware, Dance! [Pozor hud ples!] (2010) in the Large Hall. It has also hosted performances by other producers, such as Exodos Institute with the performance Between Us [Med nama] (2009), Vitkar Institute with No-Body Project by Anna Nowicka, the project Solistika by Branko Završan co-produced by Ljubljana City Theatre (MGL), as well as presented newest works of several Slovene dance makers. Španski borci has also hosted workshops in physical theatre and in music.

Španski borci Culture Centre organises around 300 cultural events per year. En-Knap Productions realises its programme with 22 partners. The centre offers its infrastructure also to amateur culture groups as well as organises evenings of tango and swing.
