Farmstudio was founded in 2014 and is run by Pavel Matela with the support of the association Farmstudio – Center for Art and Culture which was founded at the beginning of 2018. The former agricultural compound which dates to the beginning of the 19th century has been undergoing gradual reconstruction without any form of subsidy or any other support from public sources. The project aims to provide a base for creative and residency sojourns, symposia, courses, workshops, festivals, art school gatherings and other activities from the sphere of contemporary art and living culture. It is an exemplary cultural initiative which is based on the solitary approach and charismatic devotion of its founder who continues in his work despite the lack of interest or cooperation from the local rural community.
