Drugo More (the Other Sea) is a non-profit organization working in the field of contemporary arts & culture. Since its inception in 1999, the organization has been running a dynamic program centered around a close engagement with the overlap between art and wider social and political concerns. The engagement of the organization is three-fold, spanning across the local, national and international, with a marked focus on building bridges across and cross-cultural dialogues between these levels.
The organization has four permanent full-time members of staff, a small but dynamic team maintaining a high level of production with a program which encompasses exhibitions, seminars, festivals, performances and workshops.
Refleks - lectures, discussions and round tables about contemporary culture (since October 2009 – ongoing)
Refleks is dedicated to the discourse on contemporary culture. Through different formats we try to initiate a discussion about aesthetic, ethical and organizational aspects of cultural activity. In this framework, we have welcomed, among others, Julian Henriques, Dorita Hannah, Carlos Franklin, Marcell Mars, Siniša Ilić, Bojan Đorđev, Katarzyna Krakowiak... We have organized performance of Japanese art collective Akumanoshirushi, and round tables dedicated to different topics.
Zoom Festival – performing arts festival (since September 2010 – ongoing)
Zoom Festival was born out of the need for a distinct performing arts festival in Rijeka. We showcase works that are difficult to assign to any specific field, that combine different techniques, methods and expressions. Each year focuses on a different author, scene or topic to highlight its impact on the current state of the development of the performing arts scene.
Mine, Yours, Ours Festival – arts festival (October 2006 - ongoing)
Mine, Yours, Ours is an interdisciplinary annual arts festival engaging with topics of social interest such as ownership, transition, consumerism. In 2012, for, example, we explored the topic of Practical Utopias through various formats by bringing together theoreticians, artists and activists. The program usually includes an exhibition, a film program, performances, strategic games, round tables, parties etc.
