ATLANTIS KV provides space for international artists, open-minded visitors and local workers to try new ways of living based on sustainable principles. Local and international guests are welcome to relax, enjoy the beautiful Una National Park and contribute to the project by doing, learning or donating.
The project is located within a large factory in Kulen Vakuf, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Having been built as a factory under the Tito regime, its location within the Una National Park is unique and allows for a range of leisure activities such as rafting, hiking and bike tours. The huge warehouse next to the factory highlights all art projects realised within ATLANTIS KV: murals, paintings, handicraft, textile production and screen printing. In regards to agriculture and ecology, staff members and visitors engage in a variety of projects such as planting, gardening and the production of goat cheese, milk, jam, dried fruits, corn flour and liqueur.
We profoundly believe in sustainability in both economical and ecological dimensions. Besides aiming for a zero waste-production, we offer a variety of organic products (Goat cheese and milk, buckwheat, elderflower, corn, rakija, eggs, jam, dried fruit...) and raise ecological awareness through education, workshops and film screenings.
To realise the defined goals and projects,
ATLANTIS KV is reliant on financial contributions from partners and sponsors. While income from the textile department, sponge and cushion production, tourist offerings and other projects can cover most of the running expenses, the company’s aim is to grow organically and substantially.
‚I Await The End Of The Game With Optimism‘ is a short movie by Jos Diegel and Clarissa Seidel which beautifully captures the time they spent with the local community and staff members of ATLANTIS KV learning about the projects and artworks realised in Kulen Vakuf.
The wonderful Bosnian landscape and close-up interviews are main elements of the movie, allowing for a valuable insight into the country and its people.
In 2017, the film was premiered in both Offenbach and Bihac, Bosnia.
