In March, 2008, the Mobile Archive can be accessed at ŠKUC, one of the leading non-governmental organizations promoting non-profit cultural and artistic activity in Slovenia. It holds the status of an association working in the public interest in the cultural field. Its beginnings date back to Ljubljana’s radical student movement of 1968, while it was formally established on 31 January 1972. In the late 1970s and in the 1980s ŠKUC was one of the key supporters and promoters of alternative culture. Today, ŠKUC’s main goals are to support young and promising artists by including them in the cultural sphere and to organize creative spare-time activities for young people.

In the past few years the activities of ŠKUC have expanded to areas such as providing information and counselling for young people, education, a library, archives, social affairs, prevention, sociology, humanism as well as research activities. It has also acquired the status of an association working in the public interest in the area of health care.

In rough terms, ŠKUC is involved in the visual arts, music, film, publishing, civil rights movement, information and counselling, theatre, and festivals.
