The House of Culture Celje was originally established in 2009 on the initiative of the Art Society of Celje. Ever since they have engaged in cultural production and post-production mostly in the field of music. The primary purpose of the institute is to establish comprehensive co-production projects in Celje to strengthen the cultural offer and position of the city in the Slovene and European cultural space.

Currently it is covering four program units and presenting about 50 events annually, mainly in fields of classical music, jazz and musical theatre. It is a homeless “house” and hosts its projects in different venues around the city, mostly in National Hall Celje, cinema Metropol or in the Celje Museum of Recent History.
