Evs projekt in Palladium


About Palladiums Vänner

Föreningen Palladiums vänner (Palladium`s friends) is a non-profit organization which aims to maintain and preserve the cinema Palladium in Växjö. To achieve this goal, we let the place to different associations and cultural groups, we arrange own activities and we frequently have cultural events.
The letting is the most important activity of Palladiums Vänner. Organizations and private persons can rent Palladium`s rooms to carry on activities and events. Culture organizations, local associations, the municipality and the county council are some examples of our guests, but also private companies and persons often rent Palladium `s house.
We have frequently cinema sessions on the theatre room (Folkets bio) and we have a bar/restaurant ran by a local entrepreneur.
The main room of the house is a theatre which is composed by an auditorium and two foyers. The auditorium has place for 300 people and has a big stage. Here takes often place theatre plays, music concerts and conferences. In one of the foyers there is a smaller stage where other groups perform and can have a closer approach to the public. There the artists can show their work such as photos and paintings.
Twice a month we arrange own events such as movie evenings, concerts and stand-up performances. We have also a project called Children`s Palladium (a theatre performance that happens four times per year).
Right now Palladium`s Vänner has a board with six members who meet around two times a month. We have two part-time employees: one activity coordinator (who administrates the bookings and the letting and carries out the events in the direction of the organization) and an administrator (who is responsible for the technical support, updating the web-page and coordinating the members’ registration).
