Solidarity of Arts 2019
August 22, 2019 - August 25, 2019Free - PLN60
The theme of a piece of art catches the recipient’s attention and binds artists together. As creators, they’re opening a dialogue about our world’s problems: populism, nationalism, human rights abuse and much more. This year 11th edition of Solidarity of Arts Festival is all about courage – a key factor in artistic expression. On August 22-25th (Thursday-Sunday) whole event is going to take place in three buildings in Gdansk: ECS, 100cznia, and B90.
Symbolic hero of this festival edition is Oleg Sentsov – a Ukrainian film director, writer, documentarian, Euromaidan participant as well as a symbol of the fight for releasing political prisoners and solidarity. He was accused by Russia’s services of execution of terrorist attack and in trumped-up trial sentenced to 20 years in a Siberian labor camp and never pleaded guilty.
The schedule consists concerts, debates, film and video shows (Mr. Jones, Bird Talk, Gaamer, Act & Punishment) and other accompanying activities (handcrafting workshops, chillout zone at the table and Reminiscence – sound installation of Oleg Sentsov’s last will)
