More about the project here.

Glej, we will carry on.

Despite the withdrawal of a significant part of our funding, we have continued with our programme with a support campaign and continued to believe in what we have been doing for years. In February, we were delighted to hear that Glej Theatre had again been selected for a four-year programme call by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia.

The work of Glej Theatre has been recognised once again, which will enable us to better follow the set programme guidelines and to provide support and development for the innovative content of the artists we work with. Thank you to everyone who has shown their trust and support.

How can you still support us?

Glej, Crossing Border +

Glej Theatre is joining the international network Crossing Border +, a continuation of the Crushing Borders project. The network brings together different national and international organisations to provide artists with different solutions on how to internationalise their work. Crossing Border + consists of 12 residency centres, production houses and festivals and is led by IDRA Teatro di Brescia in Italy. The partnership stands out for having immediately embraced the principles of the 2030 agenda to address the issues of mobility in relation to environmental impact, gender equality, respect for minorities and rebalancing with disadvantaged countries.
