KUD AAC Zrakogled
is a small NGO based in the multicultural region of Istria. Since 1996 we have been active in the fields of publishing, performance arts and education. In recent years we have published about 30 book titles and participated in several co-publishing projects. Our editorial emphasis is on fiction books by renowned authors from the cultural and geographical space of the wider Mediterranean basin.
The topics of multiculturalism and human migration find their literary expression throughout our editions, be it prose, poetry, drama or essay. In the last few years, we have been also involved in several multicultural projects and projects which deal with human migration.
Our special focus is in publishing poetry and drama, original and translated alike. We are particularly interested in the first editions of the most significant cutting-edge young and/or marginalized Slovene authors. With our authors from Slovenia and abroad we organize literature events, readings and presentations.
We are particularly proud of Marina Cvetaeva’s poetry and prose collection The Attempt of a Room for which our translator Andreja Kalc was awarded the prize for the best young translator at the Ljubljana Book Fair and was shortlisted for the ˮRead Russiaˮ international prize.
