  • Description


    Dear reader, this project started as a small initiative with an aim to renovate a long-neglected renaissance house and turn it into a pleasant space where various cultural events 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, theatre, cinema

    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, offering variety of events. Lively cafés, pubs, a tea house shelter various festivals, concerts, exhibitions, happenings.. The town is set in a scenic landscape of štiavnica hills and woods, hiking trails and several small lakes to swim.

  • Help


    We are mainly keeping the fire on during the winter, renovating old furniture, cleaning.. With the coming spring we will work in the garden, preparing a scene for a small garden café project. (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 4to5 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 artists, intellectuals, seekers, pilgrims, dreamers...
