After a year, the KUL.TURISTA returned to the bus terminal in Suché Vrbné. The second annual charity fair and fun day for not only children, but also their parents took place here on Wednesday, April 12. A big thanks goes to the organizers of the event, the Czech-English Gymnasium and its students.
The KUL.TURISTA set off to the Doudlebsko region for the second time, this time with the theme "Resurrection/Rebirth of Houses". Within our platform 28 Houses, which connects cultural houses (and one garden), we have great partners in the region who organize the Cultural Tourist in their cities as part of the first joint project.
"We decided to brighten up the whole city and start using the potential of all the neighbourhoods. That's why Kul.turista was created in the first round of the ECoC competition." says its coordinator Lucie Boušková in an interview. What has Kul.turista done? What changes has he observed in the city after a year? And what is next for Kul.turista?
The application of permaculture principles to cultural planning is innovative in our context, but at the same time it is not an unpredictable experiment. Our goal is to create an environment that is resilient and adaptable. It is stable and sustainable in the long term.
"Free culture is a great support for a democratic state," says philosopher Alice Koubová in an interview
In the context of the coronavirus pandemic and the current inflation, culture - cultural institutions and artists themselves - are under pressure to constantly defend their place. Is the solution to this situation better communication or resilience? Will this change the role of cultural institutions? And what is the place of the (PERMA)CULTURAL FORUM in all this?
