Clubture Network


Clubture Network (established 2002 in Zagreb) gathers independent cultural organizations from Croatia and functions as a cooperative platform through which organizations work together in organizing numerous cultural and artistic events in various communities and citizens across the country. Due to the diversity and the range of activities, and the innovative and inclusive model of cooperation and decision-making, the network has become an important actor in the independent cultural production in Croatia, primarily in areas such as urban and youth culture, interdisciplinary art and cultural projects, activist and socially engaged programs etc.
