The Hraničář Society (Spolek Hraničář) is an artistic platform in Ústí nad Labem which connects contemporary art and culture with everyday life. It is composed of a rich and particularly well-rendered program, which the group stages in the building of the former Hraničář Cinema, and it caters to various social and age groups.

The society works with the local municipality, the University of Jan Evangelista Purkyně and other institutions, and currently supports a large part of the overall artistic activity in Ústí. The program articulates important current topics from the sphere of art and ecology, sustainable economics, and social issues. Their activities and cultural strategy have positively reflected on the overall communal atmosphere of the city, and the nature of the local public spaces.
