The current time of pandemic disruption and forced isolation was a new experience not only for the habitants of the Tri-City area. Foreigners who chose Tri-City as their place of residence also faced many new challenges. We are slowly coming back to reality, readapting to the new realities of life. In this very challenging time, there is an immense need for ideas and spaces that will allow the free contact and the reestablishment of relationships with self and others.
Project emiGRACJE is an innovative concept developed and designed for this purpose. It is dedicated for Non Polish and Polish women with or without migration experience who want to meet in a new, post-pandemic reality, experience being together in nature and make new connections: with their own physical bodies, as well as with other participants. Meetings will take place once per week, on Thursdays after 17.00 (exact time will be confirmed after the registration of participants). Workshops will last for 1.5–2 hours and will take place in a beautiful natural setting, at the Garden of Ethnography Museum in Gdańsk (Gdańsk Oliwa ul. Cystersów 19) for a period of 7 weeks, starting on Thursday, 18th June.
There will be an initial presentation meeting (which is virtual based and obligatory) on June 11, 2020 at 19.00 on the Zoom platform. Application form: here
