ABOUT PORT OF DANCE
Founded in 2018, HKD is a newly established institution in the culture of Rijeka. It is a public institution for the performing and visual arts, with the tasks of coordinating, preparing and conducting cultural programs in the field of performing and visual arts, artistic creativity and related activities. Its large performance space (520 seats) stages numerous cultural, educational and entertainment programs throughout the year, in the field of dance, drama, music, film, multimedia and visual arts. There is also a place for exhibitions – Gallery Kortil – which also occasionally features some of the stage programs. A third venue is the Atrium, which can accommodate up to 200 visitors. This space is mainly intended for concerts, lectures, round tables and smaller scene forms.
HKD is a member of Aerowaves, Pan Adria and many international networks. In, 2021 HKD became Aerowaves’s production centre for the Springback Ringside VR project. HKD has been open for work with the community, through the numerous projects from its beginnings. Its space and programs are open to diverse audiences and organizers of various cultural programs. HKD fosters inclusivity as one of its fundamental values, through its accessibility as a venue and programs for people with different physical abilities. With its Volunteer programme HKD promotes volunteerism among the organizers of cultural programs and encourages citizens to actively participate in the implementation and organization of programs in the community.
In accordance with the European Green Plan, the adoption of ecologically acceptable practices in the spirit of green infrastructure is one of the value orientations of HKD included in the strategy of this institution.
