Ceramics Society - Thrown and handmade
The Clay Society was created in April 2021 by Celina, a ceramics fanatic, and student from the Master's in Fine Art programme at PCU. After the pandemic, she felt that it was time to bring people together and reconnect with each other through art. Today, the society has over 15 active members from across all Schools and programmes. The members learn hand-built and pottery wheel techniques and they can keep their pieces. At the end of each month, a member will have produced around 3 pieces.
Photography society - We Chase the Light!
“lumière” the photography society is a student society at Prague City University, with the aim of studying, exploring, and experiencing photography as a hobby and as an art form. Starting a new life in a new city is an amazing and mesmerising experience for an individual, and what better way to start the student life by taking some amazing aesthetic photographs! We as a society wish to explore the medium of photography as a means of self-expression and the mode of documentation of our daily lives. We strive to achieve an all-inclusive and free space for people from diverse culture, backgrounds and experiences can come together to interact and create photographs.
Following are activities which our society wishes to start to create a magical experience for everyone:
2. Debates and Discussions
3. Photowalks around Prague
5. Workshops and Guest Lectures
6. Film Screenings
We strive to capture the right moment in the right light. We are “lumière” the photography society of Prague City University, we Chase the Light!

Watch parties and movie trivia
Getting through the semester can be emotionally draining and physically tiring. Sometimes, you just need to put on a good film or have a fun night in with friends! This is the ethos of film society - community.
Though it is part of the society, the purpose of film society serves more so to create community around the love of film, and less so on the technicalities of film.
If you love watching films, having debates about films and engaging in film related activities (e.g. film trivia), then film society is the place for you!
PCU Pride (An LGBTQIA+ Society)
PCU Pride is the student association for LGBTQIA+ students (and allies) of Prague City University.

We host a variety of events, including weekly meetings, social gatherings and exclusive educational events, within the university premises. If you are looking for a space to be yourself, a community of support and like-minded friends, this is the right society to join!

Film Making Society
Do you want to learn how to make movies? Do you want to practice or perfect your editing or writing skills while making new friends? If yes, then join the PCU Film Making Society!
In the Film Making society we all come together to make short films. Anyone can join, of course, even if you never made a film in your life. During the process of making a film every member gets a role such as director, writer, actor, etc. Members can also have multiple roles (like writer and actor). We all first start by brainstorming ideas together and then finalize those ideas into a script and film all the scenes and then edit the film. Come and learn a few tips and tricks on how to use a camera, edit or even act!
