    The aim is to create an earthship, for which art projects are providing the tools, using local, Slavonic, Siberian, African myth and traditions as inspiration for understanding and experiencing the secrets of earth.

    The philosophy of here is that members, volunteers and guests contribute something of themselves . Thus, this is created in an organic way and is developed by involvement of visitors who are invited to be more participants than consumers. The idea is to establish a creative exchange where those who come to participate in an ongoing creation of here, are in turn given an opportunity to re-create themselves by exploring the secrets of the earth and Polish countryside, and ultimately promoting sustainable development of the region.
