Water exhibition

The exhibition was a big success.

WATER AS WEALTH

Our high quality and plentiful water has enabled over 5,000 years of continuous settlement. 

WATER AS A VALUE

Water is one of the assets to which we have a special relationship. Because of its necessity for life on Earth, it is imperative that this irreplaceable source of life should be treated sensitively, with the right commitment to the conservation of all values ​​that water as a source of life embodies.

WATER IN AN EXHIBITION

It is precisely due to these considerations that at Ljubljana City Museum we set about creating a campaign which would deal with the importance of water in various ways. The water exhibition at the City Museum, campaigns and exhibitions in the urban environment, discussions and accompanying exhibitions opened up the aspects of the important element we are dealing with. The exhibition content was also adapted to the youngest ones.

MUSEUM WATER - WATER FOR THE FUTURE

In partnership with the water supply public company VO – KA and as part of the Ljubljana – European Green Capital 2016 project,  Ljubljana City Museum has produced a bottle of  Museum water – water for the future, which symbolically preserves drinking water for the future and warns on the importance of clean drinking water not just here but in the wider global environment.

WATER IN THE MUSEUM – WATER IN THE CITY

As water in our capital is ever present, via various projects the Water exhibition was 'overflow' around Ljubljana. At Trg francoske revolucije (French Revolution Square) you were able to see a project called Naliv (Downpour) by Matej Andrej Vogrinčič. The exhibition space on Jakopič Promenade in Tivoli has featured an exhibition on water through the summer of 2015 and in spring 2016 Krakovski nasip was enriched by photography about the River Ljubljanica.
