Szymon Waćkowski

Szymon Waćkowski absolwent Animacji Kultury Instytutu Kultury Polskiej Uniwersytetu WarszawskiegoClasses and study tours on the Culture Animation specialization allowed me to confront myself with the areas of art that I had taken for granted (e.g. painting workshop or documentary film workshop) and made it easier to use elements of these in different areas of activity. Particularly valuable was the encounter with community arts which showed me that art can actively combat exclusion and challenge social and class divisions.
