The project "MigrARTion", which took place from 18 to 27 August in Krzyżowa, was connected with the issue of migration and its experience expressed in various artistic fields. The project was realized by Polish and Ukrainian youth in cooperation with the Krzyżowa Foundation and Ukrainian NGO "Cultural Geographies". The project was attended by 21 people from Poland and 19 from Ukraine.
The participants of the "MigrARTion" project came from different regions, which was the main reason for their interest in the subject of migration. Both Poles and Ukrainians participating in the project were strongly involved in cultural and social life and wanted to present the migration process in Lower Silesia with the use of artistic means. During the meeting, the young people took part in 3 workshops, working either in a film group, or in a graphic or ceramic group.
The aim of the project was to learn how to use art to explore various social issues and to create original works of art, which will be exhibited in Krzyżowa and after the project in Ukraine. One of the main goals of the project was a common experience - despite all differences, Poles and Ukrainians have a lot in common, which opens the way to mutual understanding. Moreover, the participants had to develop their creativity and creative thinking. They also learned how to cooperate in an international group.
