Public radio is a space of breadth of mind, heart and spirit“In a world that can be full of transience and shallowness, the Ars program gives people what we really need, but often forget – the breadth of mind, heart and spirit, and the time we need to take for these values,” pointed out the president of the country in her address. “That’s why it’s so important that we have public and independent radio and public and independent television, which offer people diverse and diverse quality content that encourages us to reflect on society and the world. Public media is therefore not just a mediator of content that is some kind of decisions are more interesting at that moment and everyone is talking about them. It has an important, socially responsible mission of imparting knowledge to people that could be ignored due to various circumstances, and to give an opportunity to those who have earned it with their work and talent.”

The long history of the art of recorded radioThe cultural and artistic program of Radio Slovenia began broadcasting in the fall of 1963 as the 2nd program of Radio Ljubljana. Its first editor was a musicologist Borut Loparnik. In 1969, the program was renamed the 3rd program of Radio Ljubljana. The program was initially broadcast four hours a day, then five, and since 1978 nine hours. In 1998, the program switched to 24-hour broadcasting with the introduction of the European Classical Nocturne at night.

Since 2007, the Ars Program has been composed of editors for serious music, for culture, and the editorial board for the feature program, which were joined in 2014 by the editors for religions and faiths.

Today, the task of Ars is to convey artistic content with a special emphasis on Slovenian artistic creation and re-creation, as well as to provide information on what is happening in culture at home and abroad, to record Slovenian musical works and performances by Slovenian musical re-creators in the field of serious music and jazz, to record Slovenian artistic expression and to produce Slovenian radio plays and the creation of a national archive of all genres of artistic radio.
