  • Description


    240 years old traditional house in the heart of the Alps wants to become open space where tradition and diversity meets. We want to overcome local fears of unknown and fight against stigmatisation of different groups. Our goal is to establish house where doors are always open for everybody, where community can learn from each other and where skills and knowledge makes everybody richer and more tolerant. We want that community vibe become part of the house and we would like to share our art projects and our knowledge through workshops and events.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Since we are filmmakers we will organise filming workshops and art events from local artists. We also have portable cinema which will be available for our guests. Since one of us is also mountain guide we can take our guests climbing, hiking, swimming and offer other outdoor activities. One of our hosts is specialised in baking so we can share local recipes of local food that is made in traditional wooden stove. Village Mojstrana is in the heart of the Alps. Biggest mountains in Slovenia are in this area. Also big valleys, glacier rivers and lakes are to be find in the valley. If you like outdoor activities this place is a paradise.

  • Help


    We are documentary filmmakers and artists with two sons (4years and 4 month). We would like to establish open space where artists and members of stigmatised groups would be able to stay and share their knowledge with local community. Since we want to create non profit place where money is not the most important value, we decided to renovate this place with the help of people, who are willing to share their knowledge and help us, not because of profit, but mostly to exchange the knowledge with us and local community. We need help in plastering and painting the walls and recycling some furniture. We also need help from artists to paint moral on the chimney. All the help would be appreciated.

  • Accommodation


    The house is big (3 floors) so we have plenty space to sleep. We can provide mattresses and food. We have a garden and a common space to hang out. The house is in the centre of the village with many opportunities for hiking, climbing, biking, swimming,...

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It is mountain valley, where life is quite laid back.. We like art, music, films. In the house we have a projector where we screen films from local filmmakers. In the village there are two bars, a shop and many mountain houses. There is a lot to do and because this is a very known place in Slovenia, sadly it is not affordable for most of budget travellers. With our open house we want to change that and give a chance to experience our beautiful environment to all.
