NOVÁ SÍŤ

Nová síť is a founding organization of a cultural network bearing the same name, which has been uniting organizations across the Czech Republic since 2004. Over the course of 15 years, this network has grown to twenty members and at this moment it is divided into three groups, according to the form and intensity of mutual cooperation:

• NETWORK PARTNERS / Continuous collaboration in the full scope of joint activities
• COOPERATION START / searching for possibilities of mutual cooperation, the season before the partnership is
established
• IN CONTACT / co-operation in a limited range of joint activities

Events: We have four key projects: Network Nová síť - regional cooperation project, Malá inventura festival (and its echoes in the Czech Rep. and abroad), Nová krev na scéně (New Blood on Stage) - youngest artists support program, ART GATE behind the scenes – technical skills training program.

Location: Nová síť is since its inception connected with Prague 7. In recent years is based in the very center of the river Vltava meander in Prague‘s Holešovice.
