Culture Animation is for me the perfect blend of doing, talking and changing your perception of the world. Owing to the direct methods I can pass my knowledge on and encourage others to share their experiences.
From my time there, I remember best the classes held as part of the Creative Education Laboratory at the Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art run by Maja Parczewska and Janusz Byszewski that changed my approach to education and art and offered an opportunity to express my creativity.
