Truc Sphérique – the non-governmental organisation for contemporary arts and culture in Zilina, Slovakia - opened Stanica in 2003. In the space of an old but still operational train station Stanica has a gallery, workshops, artist’s residency space, a cafe, a waiting room and a multifunctional presentation venue for theatre, dance, concerts, discussions and screenings. Stanica is a platform for information, research, and realisation of experimental art, cultural and community projects and international and inter-sector communication. An example of this is the Kinobus: a cultural barter and social community event: The Kinobus project is focused on the re-vitalization of the village cinema houses in various regions of Slovakia. The project works in terms of barter: we bring the European cinema culture to regions and in return we ask for the presentation of the local culture.
