Welcome to Center Rog

Center Rog is a creative hub where you can create anything you can think of, either by yourself or with the help of our skilled mentors. Discover nine production labs, where both traditional hand tools and the latest technologies are at your disposal. Old and new, designers and masters of traditional crafts, computer geeks and bookworms, culinary chefs and metalworkers, architects and carpenters, engineers and curious people hang out here from morning to dawn. We are a factory of ideas where we run milling and sewing machines, biochemistry and imagination, restaurants and workshops, a library and a coffee shop... Here we turn ideas into products and gatherings into experiences. See for yourself what we can create together. Visit Rog's labs and Rog's marketplace - 5 shops with local products, take a look at our project studios, where designers and other creatives work on the development of their new products, hang out in our drop-in corners, available free of charge to anyone, and join the workshops.

The labs on the ground floor of the Center Rog operate on a 'do it yourself' basis and are accessible based on membership, which brings numerous benefits and discounts. The membership fee is €15 or €10 for students, individuals under 25 years of age, retirees, those over 65 years of age, the unemployed, and asylum seekers. Members can use the laboratories by purchasing one of the three user packages, which are valid for a specific period.

Labs

In the production labs, you can tackle various manufacturing challenges with the help of equipment and machines. You can deal with very concrete and tangible challenges - from repairing various objects to improving and creating new, innovative, and socially useful products. To help you, there are mentors who guide you through training for different machines and help you achieve your goals. You can use labs independently according to membership fees and user packages. There are also scheduled guided courses, workshops for children and adults, master classes, hardware training, and holiday activities for children.

User packages for independent work

Production labs can be used only by members of Center Rog by purchasing one of three user packages that are valid for a certain period of time. With a valid user package, the workspaces are accessible to users on weekdays, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Get involved

Center Rog is a base for innovative and creative individuals and organisations working in a range of disciplines. Our goal is to build a strong international community of creative individuals and organisations who share our values, and to that end we are open to a wide range of cooperation opportunities. We issue annual calls for partners as well as regular calls for projects that will have a strong environmental and social impact. We are committed to achieving a diverse creative community in terms of gender, nationality and culture, and actively encourage applications from individuals from minority groups or with disabilities.

Residents of Center Rog

There are five living and working spaces on the top floor, intended for hosting foreign guests who are active in similar creative fields as the Rog Centre. According to the principle of international exchanges, we host foreign artists, researchers, and lecturers, which enables Slovenian artists to live and work in related creative centers around the world. One living workspace is larger and is primarily intended for families and creative collectives, while one living studio can be used primarily by artists with migrant and refugee status.

Market

The Market contains restaurants and shops that are easily accessible by visitors from the Petkovškovo embankment. Here you can have something good to drink and eat - in addition to a restaurant serving daily lunches, on the ground floor there is a bistro and delicatessen with vegan offerings, and on the first floor, there is a cafe with an exit to the terrace and view of the Ljubljanica river. In addition, there are shops that offer products by local designers, from jewellery to clothes, and also the Centre Rog store, which sells materials that can be used for creating in the workshops.
