Creative Centre Project

Creative Centre Brno is a working title for an up-coming centre which will support creative activity in the city. The project is part of Regional Innovation Strategy 4 in South Moravia and the Conception of the economic development of the City of Brno.

In the Creative Centre there will be incubators for startups in creative industries, part of the vision is to have rented studios, rehearsal spaces and workshops. The aim of the project is to empower the creative potential of talented people and limit their exodus from Brno. The centre could attract a new type of investor to the city, one connected with the creative industries.

As a suitable location for the location of the centre, a former prison has been selected between the streets of Cejl, Soudni and Bratislavska. The creative centre can open up and attract the wider public to a less well visited part of town, which has been a problematic zone for inclusion in the integrated plan for the development of the city.
