Sorry-memory. Memory of spaces | CULTURE – CITY – CHANGE
About the Event
This workshop examines artistic initiatives that foster the cultivation of memory and history in public spaces. It will begin with a short presentation regarding efforts in this area as part of Night of Culture. The participants are then taken on a walk, during which they will learn about two objects that, while created for a similar purpose, provoked social tensions and strongly divided the public. The aim of the workshop is to generate ideas for initiatives centred on these items, with the intention of eliminating conflicts and bridging divisions.

Sylwia Stelmaszczuk (POL)
I’m a culture animator and psychologist. In Workshops of Culture, I work in the Department of Cultural Education and Management. Until 2021, I was the programme coordinator of the Night of Culture festival – one of the most inspiring and eye-opening Polish festivals held in Lublin every June. In my work, I strive to create mental maps of the city in people’s consciousness and also to inspire them to discover the true face of the city by displaying artworks in its streets, alleys and forgotten or unknown corners. Such initiatives awaken sensitivity to art and encourage the participants to take an active part in the city’s cultural life. I’m also interested in handicrafts. I conduct workshops, mostly crochet-related.
