City of Women - Association for the Promotion of Women in Culture

Ljubljana, Slovenia

The Association for the Promotion of Women in Culture – City of Women is a non-profit organization for the realization and organization of cultural events and was founded in 1996 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The main goal of City of Women is to raise the visibility of high-quality innovative creations of women artists, theoreticians and activists from all over the world, stimulate discussions about various artistic practices and subjects and create an overall artistic programme with the aim to raise awareness of the currently disproportionate participation and representation of women in arts and culture, as well as in society as a whole.
