It covers all the cultural centers that were created during it. The cultural infrastructure built, which has been created thanks to investment projects, will be used for cultural purposes and projects that have proved their worth will be continued.

The emergence of a new company was forced by the need to continue the ECOC project in two lines - programmatic and legislative. A contributory organization has been created for the legislative framework, the task of which is also to ensure program continuity. Legislatively launched projects and grants remain in the competence of the non-profit organization Creative Industry.
The vision of K13 - Košice Cultural Centers is to offer cultural infrastructure, ie Barracks / Kulturpark, Kunsthalle / Art Hall, Amphitheater and 8 SPOTs exchangers for cultural operators, tour operators, companies, individuals, non-profit organizations and the business sector so that the contributory organization creates complex technical and program background with the exception of funding. The intention is to continue the INTERFACE 2013 project, which has made Košice the title of European Capital of Culture 2013.
Everything that has been built in Košice in the field of culture is to serve its purpose and especially to the inhabitants and visitors of the city. The ECOC project is not over. On the contrary, it continues. The mission of the newly formed organization is to offer people a wider variety of genres, so that everyone can find in each of the facilities what interests them. The program structure will focus on a wider spectrum.
The ECOC project aimed to make Košice a creative center, which it managed to start up and create a solid foundation. Together with the non-profit organization Košice 2013, K13 wants to move this strategy even further. Barracks / Kulturpark offer great potential for developing the creative economy.
