Youth centre Kotlovnica (MCK) is a place where young people have been dictating its program orientation since 2007. We accept the initiatives and wishes of all young people throughout the year – that is why our main focus right now is on culture and entertainment. We include youth in the process of creating and implementing activities so that they become active attendees.

Among the regular activities are cultural events such as improvisational theatre, cabaret in varieté shows, poetry evenings … – all events are organised by youth themselves – and concerts, designed especially for emerging bands. We organise computer and board game evenings, exhibitions, clothing exchange, creative workshops and workshops for the training of technicians – especially sound and light.

Our organisation is the producer of youth festival Pozdrav iz Kotla, event Ognjena Veronika (festival of fire and lights) and Festival of free video production. We co-produce festival Kamfest (festival of open culture) and youth festival Mesto mladih (City of youth).

MCK has other spaces for activities – production rooms. They include a photo studio, an art room with an oven for making clay sculptures, a multimedia room, and a practice room for young musicians. The main room with a stage can accommodate up to 150 people.

We offer our facilities to autonomous groups of young artists and we are always hosting a few volunteers through the European Solidarity Corps.

We are involved with local organisations and institutions – primary and high schools, Intermunicipal Museum Kamnik, Municipality Kamnik, cultural NGOs, Business and Student club, Youth council, House of Culture, street theatre organisation KD Priden Možic … We help youth set up their own organisations and give advice to the existing ones on how to manage them better.

ABOUT KAMNIK

Kamnik, a town embraced by the Kamnik-Savinja Alps, is considered one of the most beautiful medieval towns in Slovenia. It was once a flourishing trading town, where the counts of Andechs from Bavaria had their seat. At that time, Kamnik was the capital of Carniola.

The first written sources about Kamnik go back to 1229. The two castles of Kamnik, Mali grad and Stari grad, were mentioned even earlier.

Mali grad Hill – Today, only two-storey Romanesque chapel with a crypt has been preserved, which is also one of the main symbols of the city. The hill provides a magnificent view of the town and the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.

Stari grad Hill – The spot is popular among hikers and families.
