A new creative hub was open in Brno. KUMST came from JIC, an organization sponsored by public institutions and authorities, which provides an environment to develop business in the South Moravian Region, and aims to build an environment for creative professionals.
„For us, the word „KUMST“ merges arts and entrepreneurship. This neologism is a combination of the German „Kunst“ (meaning art) with the Czech vernacular „kumšt“, which refers to a skill and common sense. Our name also pays homage to the German roots of Brno that had such an impact on the cultural and business life in our city as well as to the proverbial „skilful Czech hands“ that can work with just about anything.“
