Depo Gallery focuses on the young generation of artists from the Czech Republic, Slovakia and other countries, with whom it develops cooperation and looks for new possibilities for presentation of art in this forgotten part of Prague.

The aim of this project is among other things to revive the cultural scene in Prague and to put it in a place where there has never been any such thing until now. Hall E is used as studios for rent. The Machine Works (Strojovna) are used as a live music venue, for electronic music festivals and other events. The hall can hold up to 4,000 people and the space also allows for its partial use.
