Katowice City of Gardens
Ukraine in the City of Gardens
Katowice – the City of Gardens is the main cultural institution and artists residence in Katowice responsible for cultural, publishing and educational activity as well as artistic events. In response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the institution became a reception point for the refugees, but also an active player in securing opportunities for work and artistic expression of cultural professionals fleeing from the war. The initiative aims to encourage interdisciplinary projects and provide opportunities for visual artists, poets and musicians to proceed with their projects in Katowice urban space. Main goal of the project is to provide artist with safe space and give them opportunity to earn their income via their own artistic activity. The City of Gardens will offer access to the rehearsing space, housing, large network of contacts and professional support of their team members for Ukrainian artists in Katowice.
