The vision of DEPO2015 is to create a lively space where business and culture combine into innovative solutions.
The DEPO2015 is the sustainable outcome of the Pilsen – European Capital of Culture 2015 project. In the heart of DEPO2015 is the Centre for Creative Enterprise which combines business with culture and creative industries. The Depot will become a place where both start-up businesses and established companies reside, work, create, present and trade. A community of creative people with great ideas and the ambition to realise them will be able to use a shared space, an open workshop for making prototypes or to rent a studio or an office. The best of them can use the process of incubation, i.e. to realise their business plan with the assistance and mentoring of professionals from cultural and creative industries. The DEPO2015 will also host the residential programme OPEN A.i.R. which has been offering opportunities to Czech artists and creative people to travel abroad and inviting foreign artists to Pilsen since 2012.
The DEPO2015 will also function as an open cultural space supporting the development of new ideas and increasing the attractiveness of the place for the people who reside, work and create here as well as for the general public. In 2015, we will present the best of world design, high-quality musical productions, an interesting community and interactive exhibition and much more at the DEPO2015. In the subsequent years, we would like to enable the DEPO2015 occupants to present their work in the form of interactive exhibitions, design and products, fashion, graphics, architecture, film, music and visual art. All branded MADE IN DEPO2015!
