The Red House Centre for Culture and Debate organises and presents socio-political, artistic, cultural as well as socially engaged and educational programmes.
Since its inception, The Red House stimulates the development of innovative forms of the arts, such as interdisciplinary artistic projects in contemporary performance and visual arts, music, literature and media, and it helps artists develop their artistic language.
We try to create the circumstances for a dialogue between different forms of the art, as well as between artistic disciplines, humanism and various debates in the public sphere.
