About the project

The third year of the interdisciplinary festival tries to present the public space and landscape using the media photography, design and contemporary art. The Czech public has a great interest in the quality of public space, which is an important factor in the development of society. The proof is in attendance of the last year’s festival in 2014, which reached almost 30 000 visitors in three months. A very important factor was the participation of both, professional architects and artists, and the involvement of many volunteers, NGOs and students who participated in the multi-layered structure of the program. This year the festival will be held in three locations – Prague 1, Prague 3 and Prague 6.
A very important aspect is the co-operation and co-realisation on the part of several subjects from various disciplines – both artistic and social. The goal of this interdisciplinary dialogue should be primarily to meet and debate on how grasp creatively the transformation of public space in the country at this time and to enable its broader application within the urban development in towns and villages.
Important partners are leading educational institutions – Faculty of Architecture, VUT, Mendel University in Brno and the Czech Agricultural University in Prague.
