DRUMMING FOR BUBNY - ACCOMPANYING PROGRAM

19 June

During the first several months of 2016, the Memorial of Silence project team has been working to secure financing for the conversion of Bubny station into a memorial. Our fall cultural program will include a new presentation of the future project and timeline for its realization.

The summer-fall program will be made public on 26 June, when Bubny station will be an alternative stage on the route between United Islands of Prague and the new Metronome Festival at the "Výstaviště" fairgrounds.

Our stage will be all about drumming!

The public rehearsal for our fall event, when we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the first transport to leave Prague, will take place all Sunday afternoon under the direction of Miloš Vacík and Jaroslav Kořán.

Other planned events this summer and fall include a concert by The Tap Tap, an exhibition on the memory of the city,

and the Farm in the Cave theater festival– all of it climaxing with this year's international DRUMMING FOR BUBNY 

on 16 October, when we will also be opening two exhibitions. More information will be available on our website in the coming days.

SPRING 2016

8 May 2016

At the turn of 2015/16, we focused all our efforts on securing financing for the train station's renovation, which we expect to being still during this year. The new project outline – the design of the future Memorial of Silence, including a timeline for the future realization of the center of memory – will be presented at this fall's DRUMMING FOR BUBNY.

We will hold several cultural events during the summer, and are planning two new exhibitions, theater performance, and smaller concerts.

DRUMMING FOR BUBNY commemorates the 75th anniversary of the first Jewish transport to depart Prague. This year's event will include an educational program inspired by Philip Zimbardo's "Heroic Imagination" concept.
