About event

This is a mural about dreams, plans and longings. About the future and the past. About temporariness. About being somewhere else and trying to feel at home. About creating community and connection. About “everywhere” and “nowhere”. About joy and sadness. About being hosted and hosting. About expressing oneself. About the realm of freedom on a piece of wall. And about a slice of space that becomes as spacious as the outer space.

The work was painted by the refugee community and the residents of Lublin under the direction of artist Maciej Pałka. Various pieces were also created by the residents of our city. Each person shared what is important to them. “Kosmos” (outer space), although a few dozen square meters in size, is an infinite space, multithreaded and open to all voices, new people and their stories.
