1 The Český les Protected Landscape Area (Czech: Chráněná krajinná oblast Český les, usually abbreviated as CHKO Český les, the name can be translated as Bohemian Forest)

JARO Milíře is an artist-run space for ecology-related residencies and courses in the bohemian forest, the Czech Republic. Situated right at the edge of the Český les Protected Landscape Area1, the space aims to bring together thinkers, makers and researchers with an interest in landscape- and place-based investigations.

We’re currently transforming our old stodola into a workplace that’s fit for residencies, screenings, small exhibitions, thematic lectures, discussions, and courses. JARO’s origin lies within Indian classical music. We’ve been hosting and teaching Dhrupad courses for over 20 years. Once the renovation is complete, however, our focus shifts towards visual art and ecology. Our interest in the natural world is also dispersing its seeds onto the land around the stodola. We are preparing our land’s soil for syntropic permaculture and food-forestry.
