Amount: 99 000 CZK
Organization: PURPURA, o.s.

The project ´To the stars’ is alive! We have continued rescuing of the former Tatra museum depository, for the town of Kopřivnice historically valuable object no. 107. Thanks to an active public involvement we have been gradually constructing the Galaxy Gallery – a new meeting place and above all the unique exhibition space for artists of the pure heart.
What has happened untill now? A planned demolition of the object was revoked.Purpura o.s. took on object´s indefinite tenancy. The first phase of the reconstructio is being completed. We have organised a series of unusual awareness-raising events involving the wide public.
What are we currently working upon? We are compiling the design concept of the Kafe Galaxie and the interior equipment of Galerie Galaxie. We are preparing the first art brut exhibition. The road to Galaxy Gallery – we have paved it literally ourselves.
And what are we going to need now? To arrange all the down-to-earth issues! To finish access pavement construction in order to connect and bond the life in the Galery to the surrounding space of the urban park. Thus the spatial and material conditions of the galery and caffe run will be met.
