Im Zentrum - Jeseníky / Altvater Region art, literature and music festival.

A German-Czech initiative in art and culture.

Together with locals and contemporary witnesses (German as well as Czech), artists, writers and musicians open up a space for encounters and meetings in the Jeseníky / Altvater region.

The festival events defy categories while embracing all generations and focus on the history of the border region until the displacement of the German-speaking population, that has been repressed until very recently.

Taking as a starting point villages of former austrian Silesia once flourishing but now insignificant, German and Czech artists, writers and musicians shed some light on that special border region and its history with a view to the future.

The performance space is situated in a region once playing a central role in middle-european history, but remains a white spot on the map, especially for younger generations.

The prelude Im Zentrum 2016 manifested the great interest of German and Czech participants and visitors alike to re-explore the cultural identity and knowledge about this century-old German-Czech neighbourship.

In the years ahed a network of the many festival participants will continue to explore and open new possibilities of German-Czech collaborations.
