Founding Team

Andrea Šenkyříková
founder and creative director

The idea to hold the festival was born in my mind in early 2013 after I found out about Open House London. I was thrilled about this easy concept that is based on curiosity and interest in your city and the place where you live. The community aspect, which works very well in London, was also very appealing to me – and that was before I even had any idea how rewarding and energizing it is to collaborate with volunteers across generations. I am incredibly grateful for their enthusiasm and their hard work each year.

I’ve been a part of the festival ever since the beginning, and it probably has to do with my lifelong need to give people access to information. To offer everybody (including myself) another possibility to educate oneself and to be interested in the place where you live. I also believe that opening the imaginary door – in our case, doors of buildings that have an impact on us without us even knowing – is all it takes to leave us astonished.

The festival is very close to my heart. I knew right from the beginning that this was an event that I wanted to be involved in. I enjoy communicating with owners of the buildings and learning new information about the open houses. There is no better reward after months of hard work than the weekend of Open House Prague, which is filled with positive emotions and adrenaline.
