‘Orońsko Free Academy - Jubilee meetings with art and handicrafts at the Centre of Polish Sculpture’ is a project implemented within the framework of the ‘Kultura Dostępna’ – Accessible Culture, run by the Minister of Culture, National Heritage and Sport. The aim of the project is presenting the relations between an institution of audiences of all age groups especially those which cannot participate in cultural life on a daily basis, due to territorial, economic or mental reasons.
Orońsko Free Academy refers to the historical events in the area of the former Józef Brandt’s estate, his oeuvre, as well as to the history of the development of an artistic colony, stormy history during war times and the period of transformation of the former estate into an institution of culture, which provides support for sculptors.
Thanks to the project, members of partner organizations participating in the activities organized by the Centre of Polish Sculpture had an opportunity to take part in a series of workshops in the area of handicrafts: woodworking, ceramic art, linocut, stained glass, macramé, collage screen printing, calligraphy. It is during these classes that works were created, which are now presented at the Sculptor’s House.
The exhibition is an artistic debut for the people connected with this project. This presentation aims to portray the openness of the institution, its mission in supporting amateur work, but first and foremost it is supposed to elevate project participants as non-professional artists.
