Association Trajna is establishing KRATER, a creative laboratory in a construction pit

23.06.2020 00:00

We are pleased to announce that the Trajna Association leading our pilot project Simbiocen, has started establishing a new creative laboratory in Ljubljana.

KRATER was named after the construction pit near the Bežigrajski dvor neighborhood. From the beginning of autumn, KRATER will offer opportunities for the growth of creative ideas, experimentation, and design with natural materials obtained on the site.

They will create mobile workspaces in the construction pit, such as a handmade paper workshop, a carpenter's workshop, and a fungus breeding laboratory. They will also focus on the processing of invasive plants located in the construction pit.

In addition to the production units, space will also enable the organization of various gatherings, organized in coexistence with the local community and the inhabitants of this urban oasis.

Everyone who would like to co-create KRATER is invited to contact them. They can open the space for your activities by prearrangement, as long as you deal with the relationship between man and nature.
