    1. Improved provision of local cultural and social events.

      Mostovna is a youth and alternative cultural centre comparable to Metelkova in Ljubljana.


    Four student associations (Klub goriških študentov, Klub Druga stran, Klub 13.brat and ŠKUC - section Nova Gorica) established Zavod neinstitucionalne kulture Masovna (Institution of Non-Institutional Culture Masovna) in 1998. Masovna facilitates the culturale programmes which take place in Mostovna (from networking at home and abroad to production and advertising). Mostovna is a former industrial compound next to the railway and the national border between Slovenia and Italy which stood abandoned for several years before first ideas about its revitalisation surfaced in 1996. Although the City Municipality of Nova Gorica supported these ideas it took over a decade to build the necessary infrastructure (including the access road) and start with the cultural programmes in 2002 while the renovation and revitalisation activities in the area of Mostovna continue.
