Creativity has an unique value which is measurable

The forum for cooperation in the field of culture is the Czech-German initiative between GEH8 Kunstraum und Ateliers e.V. and Veřejný sál Hraničář, association. We associate the professionals of independent art and cultural organisations in the north-west Bohemia and Saxony. Our goal is to create a long-term forum (cultural network) that we would both interact with and encourage each other.


The forum is kicked-off with the following steps

(1) Research – visits in the region

spring — summer 2018

The first project phase serves us to get to know each other and to explore the region. That’s why we undertake the adventure mapping the arts and culture scene on-site and go for research trips. We visit spots and venues, encounter and talk with its makers and actors behind the scenes.

(2) Sharing and learningworkshops

autumn 2018 – winter 2019

The second project phase serves us to learn from each other and to exchange on our experiences, expertises and future visions. That’s why we run two workshop series hold in Northern Bohemia and Saxony.

(3) Cooperation – public symposium

spring 2019

The final stage of the project will be a public symposium, with a part hold in Dresden and Ústí nad Labem. We design a series of events such as panels, artistic interventions and performances in order to bring our publics, communities and societies closely together. We address perspectives to develop a long-term network cluster and kick off specific follow-up projects.
