Prague councillors announce recipients of cultural grants

Prague city councillors made public on Thursday cultural grants approved by the city for 2010. Among the highest recipients this year are Prague’s Divadlo bez zábradlí, the DOX centre for contemporary art in Prague’s Holešovice district, and Strašnické divadlo, all receiving between 1.5 and 6.4 million crowns. The One World documentary film festival will also receive funding worth 1.2 million crowns.

Some at city hall have criticised the grant of 6.4 million awarded to Divadlo bez zábradlí, having earlier recommended roughly half of the final amount.
