About Prototyp

The PROTOTYP is a creative, educational and organizational platform that aims to closely connect the spheres of art, science and technology and create space for their non-traditional presentation. Cooperation with other institutions, universities and the commercial sphere brings new creative talents to Brno, creating a platform for cooperation and creation, the results of which resonate in the Czech Republic and abroad.

The prototype was created in 2014 as a community student activity with big goals. It has always been primarily an art festival, to which, over time, more or less technological content has begun to be packed.

This gave rise to an unusual exhibition, party and conference under one roof, which was attended by 7,000 visitors in 3 days. You could see for example digital sculptures, playing urinals, chatty aluminum footing, immersive virtual reality, but also audiovisual shows, digital mobile workshops or lectures on creative industries.

Just for handymen and open workshops, blocks of lectures were given and space was given to present their own projects. Under one roof, it was possible to see fashion performances, light shows, interactive installations, listen to professional lectures or make a LED lamp and have a 3D portrait made.
