One of the most important experiences from my studies were the field study tours to Ostałówek as part of the “Ethnography fieldwork” run by Tomasz Rakowski. They marked the beginning of a long history of exchange, reciprocity and collaboration with the inhabitants of Ostałówek – my returns to the site, project activities and the search for methods originating from research and morphing towards activity and creative co-existence. This was where I met the team from the Institute of Polish Culture with whom I now work, develop “enthoanimation” activities and with whom I have been friends for over a decade.
