The project Smetana200 is an open concept, encompassing events of all kinds, whose aim is to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Bedřich Smetana's birth in 2024. Smetana200 initiates, coordinates, and encourages cooperation among organizers across the cultural sphere, from prestigious musical events to the support of leisure activities and educational programmes.
Our objective is to cover projects across different disciplines and organizers, from pastime activities and educational programmes to the most prestigious music events. We encourage the emergence of extraordinary events and other outcomes, taking place even before 2024. Additionally, we provide all of these activities with media coverage and facilitate their mutual connectedness.Find more
The year 2024 will mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Bedřich Smetana - the composer who laid the foundations of Czech music and, in a broader context, also of Czech culture. On this occasion, let us commemorate the achievements and the legacy of a composer whose statues are placed all over the Czech Republic - probably too numerous to count - and after whom squares, streets and parks in almost every Czech town are named.Find more
