Curatorial and Press Trips to the Czech Republic 

Through our support of curatorial trips, we seek to integrate the Czech contemporary art scene into global affairs. The response of foreign media helps us spread awareness of our country and culture.

We invite journalists from around the world to important domestic shows, so that they can get to know the Czech cultural scene directly in the Czech Republic.

We cooperate in organising trips with domestic and foreign institutions, galleries, festivals, showcases with various artists, critics and theorists.

Czech Centres awards and residencies

Supporting talented, young Czech creators across all cultural fields is one of our main priorities. The winners of competitions – young artists and scientists – have the opportunity to stay at one branch or another of the broad network of Czech Centres during a residency conceived as an internship.
