We will elect our guest from among proposals for an audience-engaging workshop-like creative activity connected with their practice and – preferably – with some kind of enquiry into the WRO archives. The activity shall be conceived for and developed with a certain target audience, preferably students, grown-ups or senior citizens and should be connected with some kind of public presentation (live performance, artist talk, work-in-progress presentation). Apart from organizing the audience-engaging activity, the artist will be free to work on their own projects and explore the cultural life of Wrocław.
There’s no age limit, nor gender preferences. We would like to collaborate with an engaged, self-reliant person with good communication skills, who enjoys team working in the field of audience-oriented, inclusive art practices.
