Where to take, and why give? The six-part podcast series Ke zdrojům! is about physical, inspirational, financial, and human resources in culture. What are the backgrounds, needs, limits, and motivations of those who make, teach, or distribute art? Where and under what conditions – or in spite of what – does art emerge, and what social questions does it raise? The series is hosted by Tereza Havlínková.

We ask for resources whenever we sense change, a lack, or uncertainty. Resources change along with the needs of the society that seeks, extracts, provides, and defines them. Art can initiate such changes as well as reflect on them, and it is therefore an important space for dialogue. The podcast Ke zdrojům! explores current social issues such as the need for space to live and work, the availability of arts education, and power relations, whether they are in family ties, sex, or international politics.

Each episode of the podcast has a slightly different genre, but each gives space to personal and lived experience. Interviews with pupils and teachers at an art-focused primary school are complemented by a report that explores the rural life of two female artists. The audience will also encounter two texts concerning the transformation of interpersonal relationships and the relationship with one's body, currently important topics in art. The crisis regarding the distribution of resources is addressed in the testimonies of representatives of cultural platforms.
