Meet an American dancing ballet in Brno. Photo: Tiffany Byrd

Brno is full of talented people, and some of them are not originally from the Czech Republic. We’ll introduce them one at a time. This month, meet Tifanny Byrd, a ballet dancer. 

While most public events have been put on hold for a long time – there are no concerts, performances or exhibitions – the people who have art and creativity as part of their lives are still here. We decided to highlight these people through a series of articles and videos on our blog. Tiffany is one of them. Originally from the US, she’d danced for Brno theatres for many years. “Living as an expat has always had its challenges. It’s also not easy to be an artist in Brno, especially as a ballet dancer. The pay is not that great and many of the corps de ballet struggle to make it month to month with bills. Dancers tolerate a lot of mistreatment that would not necessarily be tolerated or even allowed in other industries all for the sake of their love of the art.” Read the whole interview at our blog.

Brno Expats and Lockdown – how are we faring?

On 12 March, it’d been a whole year since the CR declared the 1st state of emergency. For this rather grim anniversary, we asked foreigners living in Brno how they’ve been dealing with the challenges of the past year (and of today).

Online Programmes Offered by Museums and Galleries

Even these days there are still several ways to enjoy art. The first one is the online collections that museums and galleries offer. So from the comfort of your own home you can admire, for example, the digitized painting Head of Medusa, which returned to the Moravian Gallery in Brno this March.
