The aim of the project is to open contemporary arts to the public by establishing a media platform. Within the Czech media landscape there is not any website that would address the actual issues of contemporary architecture, urban planning and other related fields on regular basis.
The project is based on a partnership of 4AM, which guarantees proposed themes with respect to expertise, and CMED, which participates in publishing online Daily Referendum and thus possesses the knowledge of journalistic discipline. Within the project the unit called “Cities” will be established, as part of both Daily Referendum´s website and 4AM website. Within the latter it will serve as a multimedia platform. Both platforms will be focused on interdisciplinary approach, which perceives contemporary architecture and art in relation to physical space, culture and politics.
The unit “Cities” will provide space for critics to express themselves and enable them to address broader audience. Professional journalistic leadership will encourage them and provide them with new skills, especially with the knowledge of comprehensible language with respect to the public. The project will also directly approach both expert and non-professional audience by themed web platforms, international workshop, newsletters, online discussion forum and communication activities.
During the initial workshop the participants selected from number of critics will share their experience and views across the various fields and compare them with their European colleagues. Foreign experience will be also used during the creation of the content of both units. The project will manage to strengthen the society´s relation to cultural institutions, because it will provide the broader public with critical insight on functioning of those institutions and give an update on actual affairs. The proposed unit will also contribute to sustainable development of cities by publishing articles focused on urban planning.
