The CINEMA project aims to bring life back to neglected and abandoned spaces in the city center with the help of the creative industries. In Košice, our goal is to revitalize the unused spaces on Strojárenská Street and create a new Creative Center of the Košice Region. It will be a space for artists, creatives, fans of art, organizations, or civic associations.
In this international project, we work together with 16 partners from 7 countries – Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia, and Moldova. At the local level, we cooperate with The Agency for the Support of Regional Development Košice. As the current situation does not allow our international partners to visit us in person, we have invited them on a virtual tour of the Bravo Hub, which is being established at Kasárne/Kulturpark as part of the Košice 2.0 project. It is meant to serve as an inspiration and a successful example of transforming spaces that have lost their designated use over time into a space for professionals from the cultural and creative industries.
