Woodland beyond Photography is three day event in deep forest of Kočevski rog in Slovenia. The main theme is photography and environmentalism, so you can expect photography expeditions, talks, projections, exhibitions, challenges and even performances. And of course bonfire with acoustic music.
It is happening every year on the last weekend of July. It is open and free event. It is not a workshop, but it is not a leisure time either. We are a group of artists that are planning to create certain projects together. We invite people who want to come in this environment to either create their projects or helping others in creating them.
This year’s theme is Artists in Resistance. As a protest against cultural policy of Slovenian government we consciously decided not to ask for any governmental funding, but we will rely on our own survival capabilities and continue to create art.
WHAT DO WE OFFER:
We will provide camping ground, water, toilets and improvised shower. We will provide organised lunches and dinners, but not breakfasts.
WE DO NOT PROVIDE:
We do not provide comfort, because comfort is overrated! We do not provide entertainment, but we expect you to join the group dynamic and be the part of entertaining event. We do not provide camping equipment. There are few beds available, but we expect about 100 people, so convince us that you need a bed and you will get it for free. That said we are humble artists with latent wish to be grand dictators, so I am afraid that this deep seeded complex might erupt in a form of hidden pleasure to negate your wish. As ancient Greeks were saying: “Comfort is the opium of the people!“. A room with king size bed is the prize for an art concept that will win a competition.
WHAT DO WE ASK:
We ask only three things.
Respect for the nature and its laws.
That you are coming as a participant of the event and are willing to contribute to it.
To pay 60 EUR for six meals, provided by professional chef.
