Our organization

Zavod EREA is a non-profit organization established in July of 2021 based in Slovenia (EU).

People behind Zavod EREA have been participating in Erasmus+ projects and LARP (live-action role-playing games) from 2017 onwards. Throughout these years, we went from participants to co-creators and leaders gaining valuable skills, experience, knowledge, and connections with fellow local and European organizations.
