The structure of the beckoning water tower, built at the former railway station, has, for the town of Vratislavice, recently become the focal point of cultural and community life. The meritorious preservation of the structure, which may, in fact, be the only one of its kind, and the culturally-educational activities have managed to foster a lush and sought-after public program. The inhabitants and the local small businesses either take active part in the volunteer work, or support the cultural events materially. This testifies to the collective’s ability to generate and maintain attention, and to support the inhabitants’ interest in their city’s common spaces and cultural values.

Supported with a grant of 70,000 CZK
