about us

We are creative people who work for railway companies and we devote our free time to art forms and fun. FISAIC is an association organizing leisure time activities for railway workers, not only to support their many talents but also to promote railway as such. The abbreviation comes from its French name (Féderation Internationale des Sociétés Artistiques et Intellectuelles des Cheminots), which means the International Federation of Artistic and Intellectual Communities of Railwaymen. Its main goal is to organize and cultivate leisure time activities of railway workers at both national and international level.

Czech railwaymen have been members of FISAIC since 1990. The organizational agenda regarding the Czech FISAIC groups has been shifted to the Railway Trade Unions (OSŽ). We organize exhibitions, seminars and workshops, competitions, conferences, international events, group meetings, etc, both on national and international level. We appreciate your work and always try to create space for you to present yourself both nationally and internationally.

The International Federation of Artistic and Intellectual Communities of Railwaymen  was founded by Western European raiwaymen in 1952. At that time, they realized that railway unite them all as their job requirements were quite similar at that time. They also realized that their dedication to rail topics (and rail-related leisure activities) have been so unique that they were connected by thought and action. Therefore they decided to establish the International Federation of Railwaymen- FISAIC  The Federation now associates over 25 European countries. The official languages languages have traditionally been French and German, newly English.
