Slovenia | Center Rog Designer in Residency Programme 2024

Center Rog Creative Hub is calling for applications from international designers for their 3-month Designer in Residency Programme from 19 August to 20 November 2024. 

Located in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, Center Rog is dedicated to fostering creativity, innovation, and collaborative creativity. The residential programme is partially supported by the Culture Moves Europe programme.

The residency theme challenges designers to explore the question: What can we learn from our ancestors? Applicants should investigate ancestral knowledge systems that offer lessons in resilience which can inform contemporary design responses to environmental, social, and cultural challenges. The values, knowledge, use of materials, resources, and circular way of living of our ancestors should serve as a starting point for the research and should present the foundation of sustainable design. 

Center Rog is searching for a fresh reinterpretation without regressing to traditionalism. They wish to showcase how designers adapt traditional concepts, materials, and values to create relevant contemporary solutions that respect natural ecosystems and promote regenerative practices.

A total of 5 creatives from diverse backgrounds will be selected.

  • Accommodation 
  • Personal workspace
  • Access to 9 production labs and shared workspace
  • Mentorship
  • Travel costs (350–1,200 EUR)
  • Creatives fee (4,300 EUR for 3 months)
