Tomaž Šalamun Poetry Centre

The Tomaž Šalamun Poetry Centre is simultaneously a library, memorial room, study facility and multipurpose event space dedicated to poetry and literature. It was established in 2016, 2 years after the departure of possibly the most influential contemporary Slovene poet, Tomaž Šalamun (1941–2014). The poetry centre contains his entire book collection, donated posthumously by his wife.

Stationed at the premises of the Public Fund for Cultural Activities in the centre of Ljubljana, the centre itself was designed by Dekleva Gregorič Arhitekti.

Alma M. Karlin Virtual Home

Alma M. Karlin Virtual Home (website).png

This virtual residence is dedicated to Alma Karlin (1889–1950), an extraordinary traveller, polyglot, theosophist, and writer from Celje. From 1919 to 1927 she travelled to South and North America, the Pacific Islands, Australia, and various Asian countries and supported herself with odd jobs and writing. Her travel and fiction novels (written in German) became very popular in the 1930s (The Odyssey of a Lonely Woman and The Spell of the South Sea, a novel in two volumes was reprinted several times in the edition of over 100,000 copies). During the war her work was banned and in 1944 she joined the Partisans. After the war she lived in a small house in Pečovnik above Celje in straitened circumstances together with her companion Thea Schreiber Gamelin.

Alma's work had been forgotten till the 1960s when ethnologists began to study her collections. Nowadays Alma Karlin inspires artists, feminists, historians as well as the inhabitants of Celje and the general public. The Virtual Home website was conceived in 2008 by the Celje Central Library and offers basic information on her life, travels, and bibliography.
