European Networks

The programme of Pilsen – European Capital of Culture 2015 has been compiled to support the partnerships of programme organisers in European cultural networks:

  • We are members of the international platform In Situ focusing on art in the public space.
  • The Pilsen independent centre Johan is a member of the Trans Europe Halles network.
  • We are working with the Prague Art Institute on a networking and education project in arts management called SPACE.
  • We are members of the strategic initiative A Soul for Europe (Duše pro Evropu).
  • Pilsen 2015 is partnering with the Cross Invitation project, which explores art sectors in Europe and has a strong link to the know-how for the Culture Factory Světovar as an intermediary for creative industry in Pilsen.
  • Together with other members of the ECoC family, we are processing an application for the Creative Europe programme for artist residencies and networks for workers’ exchanges.
  • Thanks to a renewed collaboration with the Tanec Praha festival, we have been able to organise the Aerowaves meeting for spring 2016 in Pilsen.
  • In the wake of the conference called Culture-friendly City, which we organised, we are developing an informal network of Czech cultural centres in order to support our position within the creative industry, knowledge exchange and meetings.
  • In 2014, Pilsen 2015 became a member of the international network ResArtis associating residency centres world-wide.

We are working on co-productions with the following European partners:

  • Le Théâtre Du Jeu De Paume, Aix en Provence – a co-production of the theatre show Beau Matin Aladin
  • Théâtre Manége Mons – a co-production of the UBUdneS show
  • Cirk La Putyka and Cirkus Cirkör – preparatory work on the co-production of a new show inspired by puppets
