February 5-8, 2017Retreat for Jewish Artists
We are pleased to announce that Asylum Arts and POLIN Museum of the History of the Polish Jews are collaborating on a 4-day retreat from February 5-8, 2017 held in Warsaw, Poland. The Poland Retreat for Jewish Artists will bring together 25 emerging artists to learn from local and international industry professionals, working artists and from each other. The retreat aims to bring together an international group of multi-disciplinary Jewish artists to explore the unique history and culture of Poland, and create an artist community founded on reciprocity and inclusivity to build the Jewish cultural landscape. We also hope to inspire artists to explore Polish-Jewish topics and ideas in their creative work.14479685_699120116920896_8830775519008949501_n
