Nagib, the season of contemporary performing arts in the Narodni Dom cultural centre, and Festival Drugajanje in cooperation with Second Gymnasium Maribor, announce a call for applications to their joint School of Criticism. We welcome the participation of youth interested in the analysis, valuation, critical “reading” and reflection of contemporary stage arts. The programme will be organized as a season ticket featuring performances from Festival Drugajanje and Nagib, as well as selected events in Ljubljana. Participating mentors will act as conversation partners for the young critics in their reflections on perceived reality, as well as mentoring them in the skills of critical evaluation. Their meetings will take place in different formats (radio shows, talks with artists, writing pieces for blogs or websites of cooperating organizations …).
The School of Criticism’s mentors are seasoned editors, critics and theoreticians working across a range of reference media: Kaja Kraner, Alja Lobnik, Katja Kosi, Maja Megla, Rok Vevar, Nenad Jelesijević … In agreement with the participants, we are open to inviting additional mentors or guests.
