Activities & Affiliation:

2013
Brno has a great creative potential and is well aware how the support for creative people and their activities is important, as they have, among other things, a significant impact on the overall development of the city and its economy. Therefore, it is planned to build a centre with a working title Creative Center Brno for support of creative industries.

Projects:

2012
Second cities (oder other) haben etwa eine halbe bis eine Million Einwohner, aber sind nicht Hauptstädte eigener Länder. Darin steckt jedoch ein starkes kreatives Potential. Die Qualität der Kunstausübung und der sich dort gestaltenden Kultur ist vergleichbar mit der, die die Künstler in den Metropolen erschaffen. Dennoch mangelt es ihnen an der erforderlichen Aufmerksamkeit. Das Projekt „RegioKiez“ vermittelt daher im Jahr neue Kontakte zwischen dem Freistaat Sachsen, Südmähren und Zlin Region. Dadurch wollen wir den Künstlern neue Möglichkeiten eröffnen.

Talks & Publications:

2008
This publication presents those projects that included the participation of Czech organizations and those projects that received support in the period 2001-2006, those years in which the Czech Republic had access to the programme. Even though the financial resources awarded were quite limited, the programme´s support still prompted an entire range of positive results.
