Gozdowo – this small village next to for 10 days Sierpc became the center of various activities. For many students it was the first time to get some animation experience. Some of them after this experience decided to continue this adventure. In Gozdowo both experienced animators and students at the same time created their own project. The open formula allowed everyone to participate in sombody’s else project. Our proposition was photo workshops for children and young people from Gozdowo. At our workshop photo cameras became a tool, that helped young people to tell stories about the places they live.

Wonder celebrated

Yesterday (27th June, 18.00-22.00) we celebrated one of wonders of Warsaw – Stadion X-lecia. Worth celebrating not only because existing in Warsaw for more than half a century – as a stadium and then as a market – but also because these are the last days of  Stadion as we know it (it will be closed by the end of June and replaced by National Stadion for Euro 2012).  Music has been played (Gadajaca Tykwa and Nic Wielkiego), stories told (Armenian and Vietnamese), food eaten (Armenian lavash, Georgian basturma, Vietnamese corriander), ghosts of Stadion recalled (Szurkowski and his mysterious disappearance in tunel – during Wyscig Pokoju, Stanisław Królak and his bicycle, legendary bare-foot Leonidas, Kazimierz Deyna, Paweł Janas and the last fatal goal in 1983 and many others) and finally – real football played by real people. Four hours spent with people of Warsaw (app.120) inside Stadion like inside spaceship, wind and changing weather, sunset and moonshine, this is what is experienced. For those unlucky ones who has not participated: it will never happen again and life of this city has changed; so – by totally unserious activities like singing, playing football and eating – we left our trace in history. And legend born yesterday is – at least – like from here to Gdansk.
