Justyna Piernik

Justyna Piernik absolwentka Animacji Kultury IKP UWThe Culture Animation specialization was for me an inspiration for everything that matters in my professional and non-professional life. It is precisely owing to the specialization that I came across the Muzyka Kresów Foundation many years ago and participated for the first time ever in traditional singing workshop, a field which I work in today. It was among others thanks to the study trips to the East with the Borderlands School organised by the Institute of Polish Culture that I could pursue my fascination with small homelands that I have been documenting in a series of the Mikrokosmosy radio show aired in Program 2 of the Polish Radio. Popularising the philosophy of culture without divisions into low and high culture with special focus on its creative force has become my mission.


Journalist of the Programme 2 of the Polish Radio, traditional singer, culture animator. At the Program 2 of the Polish Radio she hosts her own series of Mikrokosmosy show dedicated to culture and its significance in creating local communities.
