Move Ostrava’s objective is to support and cultivate the scene of contemporary dance, circus, and movement theatre in the city of Ostrava as well as in other regions, thus supporting decentralization of Czech dance. Their annual programme focuses on addressing general public and providing professional development for expert public and professionals. The support of development happens through artists residencies, original creative output, production, and workshops. All activities converge at the international festival Move Fest organized by Move Ostrava for the cities of Ostrava, Košice, and Valašské Meziříčí.

Move was conceived in 2014 as a project of the Ostrava Cultural Centre Cooltour. In 2022, an independent association Move Ostrava is going to be established to carry on with the activities.
