"Solidarity Project 2.0 - A Response to Covid-19"
It is an incredibly important project stemming from the Solidarity Project, originating from Poland. The original Project was applied to art in relation to Solidarity. It is now 40th Anniversary of the Solidarity movement that changed Poland and was a major movement in recognizing human rights. The Project has been spearheaded by international artist from the United States, Joanna Pottle, who is working as a Fulbright Scholar in Poland.
The link to the full description of the Project is provided here: https://www.joannapottle.com/news
As the impact of Covid-19 has been (and continues to be) devastating worldwide, the Project has expanded to entering a new physical paradigm that is drastically altering life as we know it and to reflect on what art means, and in the light of the pandemic, to think about the significance of artistic creation in this time of crises. Artists have been encouraged to translate the effects, visions and interpretations through their creations. The project emphasizes Humanity, Empathy and Solidarity.
I'm very excited to be a part of such an opportunity and have already mapped out my artwork! (Spoiler: it's bright)
