The next season of the project called „Adopt a flower pot“ is here. This project offers the citizens a chance to adopt a planter. The planters are located in the centre of Ostrava and their adoptive parents can take care of them and beautify them at their own discretion and taste throughout the whole season. By this we want to provoke citizens to be more interested in the common spaces of the city and to enable them to become not only the users of the spaces but also their co-creators.

Adopt a Flower Pot

The next season of the project called „Adopt a flower pot“ is here.  This project offers the citizens a chance to adopt a planter. The planters are located in the centre of Ostrava and their adoptive parents can take care of them and beautify them at their own discretion and taste throughout the whole season. By this we want to provoke citizens to be more interested in the common spaces of the city and to enable them to become not only the users of the spaces but also their co-creators.

„Adopt a flower pot“ came into existence in the multigenre centre Cooltour as a result of debates following the project „City Interventions Ostrava 2013“ (http://cooltourova.cz/en/en/projects/city-interventions-ostrava-2016/).

Cooltour approached the representatives of the urban district Moravská Ostrava and Přívoz and its Technical services with this idea. They approved it and thus provided us this opportunity.

 

·         The flower pots can be adopted both by citizens and institutions.

·         It is possible to decorate the flower pot with non-living ornaments.

·         In case you will not be able to continue with taking care of the flower pot, the Technical services take care of it again.

·         Several awards for the care will be granted.

·         The applicants will receive a brief manual describing the care and maintenance.

·         Every flower pot will get its name, which is going to be written together with the name (or nickname) of its caretaker on a sign on the flower pot.

·         The adoption is free.

 

The flower pots located in the centre of Ostrava are offered preferentially. If you are interested in a flower pot which is not on the map, but is in the district of Moravská Ostrava and Přívoz, contact us.

Do you want to adopt your own flower pot?
