The objective of the project is to create in Pilsen a truly working interdisciplinary space, which offers desired background to artists and visitors, as well as the high quality of cultural events themselves.
The industrial area of the former paper mill in the Slovany is located about 15 minutes walk if you take a popular walking trail from the city center up the Radbuza river.
This place, with an attractive exterior of preserved brick-made factory, offers more than 4,000 square meters of open space, where you can find a gallery of contemporary art, a hall for musical production, concerts and corporate events; dance hall run by young Pilsen dancers, a professionally equipped 200m² photo and video atelier as well as studios for exhibiting artists.On the ground floor, Café Papírna offers its guests a stylish refreshment with an emphasis on the quality and origin of the assortment.
The team behind this project has been formed from young active people of various creative disciplines who have practical experience in this field and want to contribute, without the passive waiting, to the development of Pilsen as much as possible. Our goal is not to compete with similar activities, but rather to help as much as possible the actual utilization of cultural potential of the West Bohemian metropolis.
Cultural activities of Papírna in 2015 were implemented thanks to the kind support of Plzeňská Teplárenská a.s ..
