PACE.V4 / Performing Arts Central Europe – Visegrad Countries Focus is a project of continuous cooperation among cultural organisations in the Visegrad countries aiming at stimulation of ideas exchange and networking within and with the regions of Central and Eastern Europe.

The PACE.V4 webpage is a virtual crossroads bringing information service about important events and news in Central and Eastern European performing arts, outcomes from the PACE.V4 activities such as podcasts, essays, videos and discussion recordings, and interviews or texts about outstanding performing arts personalities or works from  Central and Eastern European regions in English translation. 

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 and researchers.
