Support: Snaga d. o. o. Maribor. The event is held under the patronage of the Mayor of the Municipality of Maribor.

The participation of ACE KIBLA is carried out as part of the international project Risk Change, co-financed by the Creative Europe program.


The discussion is urgent: the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia (SURS) states that in 2015 there were as many as 60.000 precarious employments only in the Podravje Region, and as many as 369.000 in the entire Slovenia. It is therefore crucial that we consider the issues related to precarious work together. This refers to those directly thrown in precarious work positions, to students, who will most likely be faced with precarious work opportunities in the short, middle, and long term, and to all those that may be have full-time employments themselves, but are concerned about their colleagues, friends or family members working and living precariously.
