Voices and Values

Danuta Glondys, director of the Villa Decius Association, held a session the last day which was  sharing of personal attitudes and recommendations. She thanked the participants for their engagement and endurance. Then, she presented them the announced priorities of the current Polish Presidency of the Visegrad Group (July 2016-June 2017), especially the approach to demographical challenges, efforts towards Neighbourhood and Enlargement Policy as well as energy cooperation and cooperation with non-European partners. “Some parts are very good, some are weaker“, Danuta Glondys commented on the policy. She is convinced that the V4 countries have a strong voice in the European Union.

Experiencing Auschwitz

Our day began with experiencing KL Auschwitz and Birkenau. The guided tour was held by Paweł Sawicki and Łukasz Lipiński. Our group discovered a tragic history of concentration and work camps prisoners in the actual locations of deathly events. The place is preserved as state museum to commemorate the victims of Nazi terror.

Start with “Why“!

The last session providing the chance to flesh out the projects within the Lab. Joanna Orlik – director oft the Małopolski Institute of Culture, guest tutor of the Culture Lab – introduced a very precise scheme to the participants according to which they should work on their cultural projects. What this “magical scheme“ demanded was to answer the questions “Why?“, “What?“ and “How?“. The “Why“ refers to the motivation, precisely to the value the project is based on. The “What“ shall reveal the idea (the objective of the project, the change one wants to achieve). And, finally, answering the question “How?“ means to present the actual project, the concrete things one intends to do.
