One of the most prominent events of the Black Eyes of Ostrava project, a folklore concert, was organized on 14 November in the social hall of the Music Department of the Ostrava City Library. Folklore ensembles from the Children’s School of Art Edvarda Runda in Silesian Ostrava, namely Iskérky, Strunečky and Husličky, led by teacher Jarmila Červenková left a strong impression on the listeners. The music show was hosted by Jan Rokyta, Artistic Director of Ensemble Flair and of the Musica Pura Festival, and attended by over 80 guests.
The Black Eyes of Ostrava project includes a set of forty different events. They are organized in cooperation with important personalities of Ostrava culture, historians, teachers, chroniclers and writers. There were guided tours in various parts of the city, discussions, lectures, workshops or contests for children. Twelve Ostrava Libraries participate in the project. Its aim is to support active self-education of the Ostrava citizens and to raise awareness of Ostrava’s cultural heritage.
On 28 November, a lecture by Martin Jemelka on Ostrava’s colonies and living in them and in historical Ostrava will take place in the library at Opavská street 6111 in Ostrava – Poruba. The lecture will start at 5 pm.
