  • Description


    We are currently looking for a help with organising events and renovating attic^^

    Dear reader, this cultural project happens to be a small social initiative with an aim to renovate an unkept, abandoned house and turn it into a pleasant space, where various public cultural events and gatherings can take place. We are in search for helping hands, creative minds and thoughtful souls, who would help us to prepare a soil for microcosm of shared ideas; an asylum for literature, philosophy, cinema, music,.....

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are situated in the very center of picturesque UNESCO town (just few steps away from the main square) and yet, the house is surrounded by large garden, which creates a feeling of being in nature, rather than a town. Banská Štiavnica is a cultural capital throughout the whole summer, perhaps a little “Leipzig” of Slovakia. It offers a variety of events. Lively cafés, pubs, tea house shelter various festivals, concerts, exhibitions.. The town is set in a scenic landscape of štiavnica hills and woods, hiking trails and several small lakes to swim.

  • Help


    We are now in the renovation process of the attic. At the current stage the help involves mainly brushing off some details in the interiors. We are starting to cultivate the garden, building a little wall and terrace. (volunteering work is suitable for anyone, only the will matters:)
    We also need a help with organising events. (garden_cinema, discussions, public readings, vernissages, concerts..)
    We would work together about 4 to 5 hours, 5 days a week. The schedule is flexible.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Banská Štiavnica is mainly recognised for its sublime genius that might stem from its organic development throughout the centuries and unique setting in nature. Narrow streets of cobblestone epicly winding in front of you, will lock you in the times long forgotten. Still unspoiled by tourism, Štiavnica attracts open minded people, intellectuals, artists, seekers, pilgrims, dreamers, metaphysicians...

A door. Splits the space, divides it into outside and inside; a door can invite or restrain the other an access.. opens and closes. Closed door implies secrecy, stirs curiosity.
