PACE.V4 / Performing Arts Central Europe – Visegrad Countries Focus is a project of continuous cooperation among cultural organisations in the Visegrad countries. The Arts and Theatre Institute in Prague has founded this platform with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and of the International Visegrad Fund in 2012 with the purpose of creating and implementing joint presentations, networking activities and research projects of the current performing arts in the Visegrad and Central European countries in an effort to strengthen the cooperation within this group of countries and to increase the region’s visibility on the international level. We are active in international platforms, such as the main performing arts markets and festivals, and we also organize various events in the Visegrad region, such as conferences, meetings or other activities for performing arts professionals.
