Jatka78 is one of the first open cultural centres to open in Central and Eastern Europe. The former slaughterhouse now offers a space for entrepreneurs, performers, circus artists and many more. You can even see the complete venue through google maps.
After a trial period of a year, the initiators of Jatka78 realised that they needed help from others to see their vision turn into reality. With a successful crowdfunding campaign they managed to raise way more than the 2 000 000 Czech crowns they were aiming for. Now you can find here the following things: a theater for exhibitions, alternative theater and contemporary circus performances, office spaces, training hall for performance, a centre for workshops and other activities for children as well as adults, and not to forget: there is even a bar. The project was set up by Circus La Putyka, a circus assembly that performs new and different circus acts.
