Connect: Katowice and London – part 2 at Rondo Gallery, Katowice, Poland

After a little more than a year, we are reaching the conclusion of Connect: Katowice and London, an important cross-cultural and cross-border international arts project between UK and Poland, which began in Spring 2016.

The primary goal of Connect: Katowice and London was to link up around 30-35 artists from both Poland and UK as a means to demonstrate through artistic collaborations the benefits of learning and communication across cultural and geographic boundaries.

To begin, the artists were arranged in around 12 small groups or pairings, and began sparking their “Connections” via email, Skype, phone, or even postal mail. After these initial contacts were made, the artists had to figure out how they would exchange ideas, and negotiate what outcome they hoped to achieve together over the next 12 months.

The first face-to-face meeting for each group came in Autumn 2016 when the British artists visited their creatives partners in Poland. This was followed by the mid-project exhibition in December, when the dozen or so “Connections” came together in London to renew relationships and further collaborations – proving also to be an opportunity for some new links to be forged!

Connect: has evolved so that there are now around 15 “Connections” working away (including some of the same groups as last year, with a few alternative combinations, and even a new face or two). We are so excited to present our second (and concluding) exhibition, coming soon from 2-17 June 2017 in Katowice, Poland.
