The Artsvit Gallery (Dnipro) and the Adam Mickiewicz Institute (Warsaw) invite to participate the performing arts workshop by polish artist and curator Waldemar Tatarczuk, which takes place September 04-06 in the Artsvit Gallery.

During the classes, participants test the main elements of performative actions. The training is based on the art from 70’s till now. During the workshop, Waldemar Tatarczuk uses the archival documentation of performances. It allows getting acquainted with the work of such artists, as Marina Abramovic and Esther Ferrer.

At the next stage, the participants perform their own actions, using the motives and mechanisms of experienced artists, and paying attention to the placement in space and interaction with the public. An important element of the workshop is the awareness of the performance as an action in time and space.

Buy Art to Support Ukraine. Purchase of an ambulance
In the spring, together with Dnipro Center for Contemporary Culture, we launched the Buy Art to Support Ukraine initiative — a charity sale of graphics by Ukrainian artists of the 20th century.
With the proceeds from the sale, we managed to buy an ambulance and bring it from Germany to Dnipro. Yesterday the car was delivered to the medics. Thank you to everyone who has joined the initiative. You have made an important contribution to the rescue of our military — most of the wounded are being transported to Dnipro from the front line, and medical workers need more and more equipment and cars.

We are raising funds for our temporary hub
During the war, Dnipro Center for Contemporary Culture has transformed into a social hub for internally displaced people. At DCCC we created a co-working, a library, a workshop, and a space for kids. Here we organize art workshops for adults and teens, premedical first aid training, animation screenings, and art classes for kids. At the same time, we are working on creating new services for those who suffered from the war. Also, the DCCC hosts offices of some humanitarian organizations, such as Martin Club and Vostok SOS.
