Kurentovanje

The masked rite of spring known as Kurentovanje is held since 1961, every February for 10 days up to Shrove Tuesday and is the most popular Mardi Gras celebration in Slovenia; most of the festivities are centred in and around Ptuj, Slovenia's oldest town, which has hosted Kurentovanje for around five decades. The Carnival was admitted into the European Federation of Carnival Cities (EFCC-FECC) in 1991. In 2017 the Door-to-door rounds of the Kurent were inscribed on the UNESCO representative list of intangible cultural heritage of the humanity.

Groups from Austria, Croatia and Bulgaria usually participate in the event, assisting local people to build up the Land of the Kurent. The rite itself is accompanied by a full agenda of concerts, activities and other attractions, ensuring that the event is attended by more than 150,000 visitors every year.

Lighting Guerrilla Festival

First held in 2008, the Lighting Guerrilla is a quite special festival that explores, elaborates and sheds light on the myriad relations between light, the public space and the 'confines' of the gallery walls. Initiated a year earlier as a workshop at the festival "Lighting Detectives" (Detektivi svetlobe), it is founded and run by Strip Core, otherwise predominately active as the comic art section of Forum Ljubljana.

The festival is well known for its luminous, site-specific 'exhibition objects' presented at several public locations, mainly in Ljubljana; its streets and gardens, the Ljubljanica bridges and quays, the French Revolution Square, the Tivoli Park, etc. By way of exhibitions, installations, workshops and performances, each year's programme is dedicated to a certain topic – among them the concept of shimmering, the functioning of darkness, and the role of light in shaping the urban experience.
