So it begins.
Day1, our hosts welcomed us in the BWA Zielona Gora Gallery Museum (our meeting place from now on), giving an introduction about the city
Krzysztof was pointing at people
Oh no, he was just counting to make sure we all made it there.
Then volunteers from the local university showed us around the city.
Skaters dumping their old shoes on the trees at the skatepark. I think everyone took a picture of that.
After a long walk and a great lunch we returned to the gallery for another talk about the city by Thomas Czyzniewski, local historian. Krzysztof helped with translation
Students being interviewed by local journalist
Not sure what this massive poster is about
This is a vineyard in the city centre. In Poland. Indeed.
And a “melted” building
Back to the gallery (again) organising our next moves…
We were taken to another gallery/artists space and had a very interesting talk with local artists
That’s all for now. Apologies for the short text, it has been a long day. Busier one coming tomorrow, there is alot to take in in very short time. It’s going to be a very interesting week…
