Art organization

Kotar theater

The artistic organization Kotar teatar was founded in 2012 with the aim of creating a cultural program in Gorski kotar. The Kotar Theater operates through the preparation, organization and performance of musical and stage works, theater performances, festivals, film works, multimedia and artistic performances, creative workshops, seminars and art residencies. Although it collaborates with numerous associations and organizations at the local level in the organization of interdisciplinary activities and events, the main program of the organization is directed towards all forms of theatrical art. 

In the past ten years, over 170 events have been held in the main organization and / or co-organization of the Kotar Theater, and with its regular activities the artistic organization creates a regional center of performing arts on the backbone of Zagreb, Rijeka and Ljubljana.
