MeetFactory is a non-profit international center for contemporary art founded in 2001 by the artist David Černý. In the wake of the destructive floods of 2002, MeetFactory was forced to evacuate its previous premises in Holešovice. The project was resurrected three years later in an industrial building in Prague's quarter Smíchov, in a unique space squeezed between a motorway and an active railroad. The program started after a substantial reconstruction in 2007. The program of MeetFactory consists in four dramaturgic departments - music, theatre, gallery and the artist-in-residence program.

The Meetfactory is a refurbished old factory/slaughterhouse which has been repurposed to house studios for young artists. In addition there is a concert venue and a theater. The whole project was created under the leadership of the Czech artist David Cerny.

This place is very artsy. It is a bit of walk from the main road and it an be scary to get from there in the middle of night. I was here for theatre and flea market. Both were good. Recommended for eclectic people. And yes they serve cider as well.

I was there for a party. The place is very big. Siting place for more than 200 people and just for dancing party more than 500 ( It's look like). Nice bar with normal prices. If only they will take care of the place more it can be even better.

We enjoyed the opening of three separate shows on the first night we arrived in Prague, and had a good look around the open studios. The work was interesting and conceptually strong. Great for lovers of contemporary art.

We booked tickets for the Meet Factory Summer Cinema while visiting Prague. We had read online that the film (which was French) would have Czech and English subtitles - unfortunately for us it only had Czech. It would have been a very enjoyable evening had we spoken either of those languages though, so the only issue was the misinformation online... More

For alternative/independent art lovers/artist only. Very local place, just a few steps from a railway going southwest of Smichovske nadrazi (train station). So if you like trainspotting, this is the place! You can also enter and have a look inside. Normally you can enter any space you like so you can talk directly to the artists in the process of...

I've been living in Prague for a couple of years now and although I initially came to MeetFactory primarily for music events.. I find myself going there more and more because of the variety offered within their program. I've had nothing but positive experiences at the many gallery events, exhibitions, and theater productions I've attended. The exhibitions are executed to... More

Meetfactory is a 'must go' place when visiting Prague. Great gallery, theather, but most of all great concerts and parties. If there is someone interesting performing in Prague there's a big possibility it will take place in Meetfactory. Also atmosphere is very friendly and lot of times you can chat and have a beer with musicians or current residents! Located... More

What a waste of time. An hour to get out there, then in and out in less than two minutes. I didn't pay anything, I didn't expect anything, yet still I felt ripped off. As much as I appreciate public art and David Cerny's sculptures around this great city, securing public funds for this so called 'cultural centre' must have... More

Hello, thank you for visiting us. We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your trip. We encourage visitors to check our website before visiting, as sometimes we can be in-between events and gallery exhibitions. We host about 300 events per year, but sometimes it so happens that there is no evening program on certain days, and some of our galleries... More
