Maja Dobiasz-Krysiak

Maja Dobiasz-Krysiak absolwentka Animacji Kultury Instytutu Kultury Polskiej Uniwersytetu WarszawskiegoThe animation internships were a breakthrough moment for me, i.e. participation in the Different Theatre School at Węgajty Theatre, in the Midsummer Dream School in Aarhus and a week spent at Odin Teatret (particularly the discussion of barters) or the study tour during the Localise programme to Trent in Great Britain. I still relate to these experiences in my work, they continue to inspire me and they are for me the perfect example of inclusive, equality-respecting and socially sensitive animation and creative activities.
