This project focuses on the building of capacity of regional, cultural and art initiatives which take an active part in addressing societal issues, most importantly in the sphere of social issues and the
The aim is to identify key actors in all regions of the Czech Republic, excluding Prague, who use innovative approaches and significantly improve the conditions of life for local communities. The information gathered through this research will become part of a map entitled the Black Edition, which will be available in both printed and online form, and which will serve as a practical tool for those interested in the issues of civic cultural communities.
Apart from the database of the individual subjects, the map interface will also offer access to interviews with select players, as well as descriptive texts by an interdisciplinary team, consisting of specialists in social anthropology, ecology, cultural environmentalism, the arts, and curatorship. The content and selection of the players will focus on cultural subjects which have had long-term involvement in ecology, have worked on issues of social exclusion, and which promote inter-generational dialogue, the rejuvenation of cultural traditions, and work with historical places, and the like.
Part of the project is to identify the problems that these players struggle with, while simultaneously featuring a visual representation of possible connections between individual organisations and individuals in a cultural, social and ecological context, on the map itself. The map will also include a text about smaller Norwegian cultural and artistic initiatives prepared in collaboration with a Norwegian partner. The map will be distributed to cultural organisations and presented at a meeting which will be attended by, among others, the experts and the general public, together with representatives of independent cultural centers and communities from rural and peripheral regions. The meeting will also be attended by representatives of our partners in Norway who will present similar initiatives in Norway and will visit several regional initiatives in Czech Republic.
The collection of data and distribution of the Black Edition will take place in all regions of the Czech Republic, excluding the city of Prague. The project will identify a minimum of five key cultural civic initiatives/organisations or individuals in each region.
