The first Slovak and Czech Art & Music Festival - Art Beat Fest 2008 is organized by TSM LONDON (www.tsmlondon.com) an international student and travel agency based in London, established in 2004 as the first Slovak professional and educational agency in UK.

 

London is one of the greatest cosmopolitan cities with cultures from all around the world. One of the aims of the festival is to connect the Slovak and Czech neighbours. And through art, music and a good spirit help those who are the most in need.

Art Beat Fest is a unique cultural event, representing Slovak and Czech art, music, culture and traditions in Great Britain and at the same time contributing to a deepening of a relationship between British public, Slovak and Czech community.

The combination of art, dance, music and striking performances will make this festival a real attraction and an unforgettable weekend spent with your friends.

 

In cooperation with the SUSCIPIO Foundation, the first day of the festival we will be exhibiting pieces of modern and traditional art, which will also be available for purchase. The Suscipio supports talent that is able to show people how to look at life from a different perspective: through colours, sounds, forms, movement, and words. In return, the supported artists will be involved in a charitable project (www.suscipiofoundation.co.uk).

‘The Art Beat Exhibition intends to bring together a selection of works from the younger generation of Slovak and Czech artists, some of which now live in London. Despite their different styles and approaches in their artistic practices, they all spent their childhood in Czechoslovakia and share what might be called a post-communist experience. This exhibition in London provides exciting insight into the young Slovak and Czech art scene and highlights the range of media in which the artists work including paintings, photography, digital arts and objects ’ Lenka Drgova, a curator of the exhibition. 

The takings will be donated to communities for chosen charitable projects in UK, Slovakia and Czech Republic.
