Prague to divide 125 million crowns among cultural venues


The City of Prague will divide funding worth 125 million crowns in the form of grants for cultural venues and institutions over the next several years; 96 million of the sum has been allotted for 2016 alone. The proposal was passed by the committee for culture at City Hall. Those to receive funding next year include Prague’s Divadlo Semafor, Divadlo Na Fidlovačce, and other theatre venues. More than 750 organisations applied for funding for 2016; 10 were excluded outright while 496 will receive grant money.
