LABIRYNT WITHOUT BORDERS | March – December 2015

A series of creative workshops aimed at various age and social groups, particularly dedicated to those with limited access to culture – children with visual impairments, youth, seniors and adults with intelectual disabilities. The workshops were related to the most significant phenomena in contemporary art and were conducted by professional artists. The project’s culmination point was the Kryjówka/Hideout exhibition presenting new pieces dedicated to the exhibition space of Galeria Labirynt, which had never before been shown. Each of them was designed to provoke an interaction between it and the viewers. The exhibition was accompanied by a guide book with descriptions of the pieces and additional creative tasks which encouraged further exploration of the displayed objects. Within the framework of the project the 21 workshops were designed at familiarising participants with painting, movement, sculpture, photography, performance, video, experimental music, creating GIF animation clips, manifestation and many other interdisciplinary art activities. These were conducted by the following artists: Alicja Bielawska, Katarzyna Bogucka, Marta Bosowska, Karolina Breguła, Hubert Czerepok, Monika Drożyńska, Marcin Dymiter, Agnieszka Fluder and Bartosz Wajer, Magdalena Franczak, Elżbieta Jabłońska, Anna Konik, Cecylia Malik, Patrycja Mastej, Florentyna Nastaj, Dorota Podlaska, Maciej Połynko, Eliza Proszczuk, Jadwiga Sawicka, Kamil Stańczak, Magdalena Starska, Joanna Świerczyńska.

LUBLIN LIKES ART| October – December 2015

An educational project designed for children and young people from locations with limited direct access to culture. The activities consisted of a series of free creative workshops in which children attending primary schools in the Lublin region participated, as well as children and young people attending local community centres in the Lublin Voivodship. The first workshops were inspired by the W labiryncie miasta / Urban Labirynth exhibition.  Anna Bakiera familiarised the participants with the issues related to the city. Subsequent meetings were devoted to creating alternative visions of reality in art, the main point of reference being the Łowcy potworów / Monster Busters exhibition. The viewers had the opportunity to get to know the ceramic works of Florentyna Nastaj and try their hands at molding their own monsters. In November and December, during the Gesty / Gestures exhibition, the workshops dealt with the issue of the human figure. The classes were conducted by Robert Kuśmirowski.
Partners: Primary School in Mętów, Primary School in Skrzynice, Regional Community Centre for Culture, Sport and Leisure in Niedrzwica Duża, Primary School in Tuszów, Regional Community Centre for Culture and Sport in Krzczonów, Centre for Culture and Promotion in Głusk. / Więcej More info >>

ART – I CAN FEEL IT! | May – November 2014

Visually impaired pupils of the Lublin Special Needs School and Education Centre participated in meetings dedicated to the exceptional Juliusz Słowacki Housing Estate in Lublin. The space, designed by Zofia and Oskar Hansen, was the starting point and inspiration for artistic activities including fields of art such as architecture, experimental music, video and contemporary dance. We started with a concrete mater – architecture to offer the young people the possibility to learn things which are not available for them on a daily basis.

The workshops resulted in a book printed in Braille and with elements of tangible graphics, describing parts of architecture at the Hansens’ housing project chosen by the participants. People involved in the project were: Anna Szary – author of the project, Hanna Wierchoła – content coordinator, Julia Kurek – video workshop, Marcin Dymiter – sound workshop, Edyta Ołdak –architecture workshop, Monika Kiwak – dance workshop.

MIASTO W FORMIE / CITY IN SHAPE | September – November 2014

What is the shape of today’s Lublin? Is this form a permanent one, and if not, how it is being shaped, what determines whether anyone of us has can influence it? The artists invited to the project together with art high school students decided to deal with the theme of a city. Its changing tissue, filtered through individual methods of creation, became a field of cooperation between young people and well-educated, experienced professionals. Each workshop was dedicated to a different area of contemporary art: photography, comics, street art, animation, performance and variously perceived activities in urban space. The workshops’ aim was to show young people that an art galery is a place where one can have fun, but also learn a lot about the rapidly changing world, and city can become a very inspiring field of creative activity. Participants had a chance to actively experience multiple fields of art. which remain inaccessible at school and could figure out in which of them they feel most comfortable.

The young people who participated in the workshops were the pupils of Józef Chełmoński Art School in Nałęczów together with Łukasz Głowacki – an artist and a teacher.
Artists: Marta Bosowska, Seweryn Chwała, Monika Drożyńska, Magdalena Franczak, Paweł Kula, Maciej Pałka, Joanna Polak.

OPEN GALLERYSeptember – October 2014

Open Gallery is a series of educative workshops for teachers of art-related subjects from the Lublin region held by Galeria Labirynt from September until October 2014. The meetings were conducted by educators and artists who had designed creative and participant-inclusive situations specially for the occasion. The main aim of the training was to familiarise participants with various methods of visual education. We focused on the area of contemporary art which often tends to be marginalised in school education. We had come to the conclusion that it is the institutions of culture which search for new models of educative activities and depart from the traditional approach to an object as the point of its own and exchange it for the perception of an art piece as a starting point for reflection and artistic activities.

An object of art as a point of reference and art activities. Similarly, a gallery space may be a source of inspiration to explore outer reality. This type of approach forces those working in the cultural and education sectors alter their way of work and include participant-friendly methods focused of the subject and not the object of the activities. We wished to move these experiences to the field of school education by inviting teachers to enter the world of contemporary art which often evokes unnecessary uncertainty and fear.
The educators involved: Janusz Byszewski, Maja Parczewska (Lab for Creative Education/Centre of Contemporary Art Ujazdowski Castle); Anna Zdzieborska, Zofia Dubowska (Zachęta – National Gallery of Art); Katarzyna Grubek (Centrum Aktywności Obywatelskiej); Paweł Kula (photographer); Maria Adamiec (Akademia Orange); Edyta Ołdak (Z Siedzibą w Warszawie society); Joanna Świerczyńska (visual artist); Maciej Pałka (comic artist); Leszek Karczewski (Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź).
