MENT Platform

 

As a platform, MENT supports and promotes Slovenian acts and authors abroad, doing so as part of INES (the Innovation Network of Showcase Festivals), which includes 18 European festivals, as well as through cooperation with other events and individual venues, for example Tallinn Music Week (Estonia), ESNS (Netherlands) and Pin Conference (North Macedonia). Within the framework of the MENT platform activities, 34 Slovenian acts have performed a total of 122 times at various foreign festivals and venues in 14 different countries since 2014.
