Hi <<First Name>>!

We are starting this season on a high note. Two years ago we came up with an idea of a project that will allow us to explore the Baltic cultural identities. We named that project Common Water.

This year finally we made this dream come true. On Saturday, September 3, we are opening our first art laboratory in Gdansk. It will be led by fantastic artists Jacek Wielebski and Blanka Byrwa. Workshop participants will explore the coast of the Baltic Sea and will make amber out of pine resin and plastic waste found on the beach. We will freeze some of this polluted landscape for the next generation as a warning. The co-created art piece will be presented at Goyki 3 Art Incubator in September.

If you are free this weekend and you are in Poland, sign up for the workshops now or find out more on Instagram @common_water.

Register for the workshops

We worked on the project for two years. We would like to thank our partners who supported us: The HUB, WATERFRONT, Intercult, BSCC, Gonzo Design, and Globe Art Point. We also thank the German Federal Foreign Office for financing the project.

We would like to say a big thank you to our patrons and donors who have supported us these two years. You gave us the feeling that we are not alone and kept us running, working, and not losing hope.💛
