  • Description


    I work as an art manager in a foundation, located in Poland - Lower Silesia. This picturesque area between the mountains, hills, and beautiful nature, makes the space very unique. In the middle of this miracle, there is an old renessainse castle, where we run the cultural center open for artists, creative people, architecture lovers and nature lovers...Simply, lovers of beauty. This castle is a unique huge building with the old painting on the walls, sculptures, and the beautiful park. We keep renovating this object to become the art space, and meanwhile organize the concerts, art residencies, workshops, theatre performances etc. If you want to become a part of our community and help us to create this wonderful community space, join us as a volunteer.
