The Slovene cluster of the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) network was established in 2007 by the following national cultural offices present in the country: the Goethe-Institut Ljubljana, the British Council Slovenia, the French Cultural Institute Charles Nodier, the Italian Cultural Institute and the Austrian Cultural Forum. Later on they were joined by the Instituto Cervantes Liubliana and the Hungarian Balassi Institute Ljubljana. The EUNIC Associated Partners are the Cultural Section of the Spanish Embassy in Ljubljana, and the Slovene Ministry of Culture.

Programme and projects

EUNIC Slovenia promotes cultural dialogue and strives to collaborate closely with the local civil society. It seeks synergies in joint projects with local partners. In 2010 the European Film Week organised in nine Slovene cities in collaboration with the European Commission, the European Parliament, Media Desk Slovenia, Europe Direct, Kinodvor Cinema and other partners took place. In 2011 Philips Fashion Week was organised in Slovenia for the first time, organised primarily by the British Council Slovenia.

In 2013, the Evening Café de l'Europe, a cooperative initiative of EUNIC Slovenia took place, promoting the spirit of European coffeehouse culture. In 2014 the project Nemo mesto (A Mute City) organised by the Glej Theatre involved Slovenian poets (Ana Svetel, Aja Zamolo, Mitja Drab, and Gašper Torkar) and poets from various European cities (Rebecca Perry, Camille Faucherre, Adrià Targa Ramos, Rebecca Ciesielski, and Yasmin Hafedh).

In 2016 The Unique (EUNIC) Combo Jazz event was held at the Balassi Institute Ljubljana.
