A new project sees the City of Zagreb collaborate with the Ministry of Culture to regenerate the former Jedinstvo factory in Trnjanska nasipa which has been closed and abandoned since 1990. With the help of EU funds, the brownfield site will be revitalised into an arts and culture space.

Arts and culture events have already flourished here, every year 60,000 visitors come to see the various groups who use the space, such as Drive - the Zagreb Center for Independent Culture and Youth, the Association for the Development of Culture and the artist Damir Bartol Indoš with the House of Extreme Musical Theater.

Dinko Peračić and Miranda Veljačić from the Design and Construction Consulting Company ARP will work on the project to modernise the building and create a brand new infrastructure. It is hoped that the completed facility will contribute to the revitalisation of Trnje, an area of the city just south of the Sava. 

This looks to be another reason to venture a little further out of the city.
