Ljubljana has strong autonomous community and squatting traditions that have grown over the last few decades, now represented in the Metelkova district and the ROG Collective. These self-governing areas are also veritable galleries of beautiful street art and graffiti, which often leans forward into the explicitly political. The International Lighting Guerilla festival is another yearly collaboration between dozens of artists in public light installations and performances. Nestled in between Croatia and Italy, this small country’s tourism industry is just beginning to grow, resulting in new tensions and conversations about the future of the country.
