Stripolis, masterminded by Izar Lunaček and Janez Plešnar, is a monthly gathering of cartoonists and comics aficionados held at Kino Šiška in Ljubljana. These meetings are intended to provide the opportunity for participants to debate and receive feedback on ongoing work, as well as to meet and pursue new collaborations. A Stripolis meeting takes place in three stages: it starts o with a presentation of a cartoonist from abroad, preferably accompanied by an interview with the artist himself via Skype; this introduction also serves as the opening statement of a month-long exhibition of the artist’s work. In the second part of the evening local artists can freely present their finished or ongoing work, or calls for collaborations. A casual after-party then brings the gathering to a close.
