Pianos for Ostrava

The project „Pianos for Ostrava“ follows the activities of Ondřej Kobza, the café owner, who brought the idea – placing the pianos in public spaces  – from abroad, where this concept works over a long period.

 

The main idea of this project is to revive in an unconventional way the streets and other public spaces in the city, where people usually just go through without stopping and perceiving their surroundings. Every passer-by is invited to play, to revive the space with music, to have fun or to attract the attention of the passers-by. But the pianos have also other possible utilizations. The music is only the beginning in this case. Many events can be organized by the pianos, for example dance lessons or bigger concerts. There are also silent movies screenings by the pianos in Prague.

 

The project was terminated in January 2016 due to the organization reasons. If there is some enthusiastic applicant who would like to take over the project and revive the beautiful idea in Ostrava, contact us at: sona@cooltourova.cz.
