Artists Lounge – Film portraits of 5 Artists from Dresden
We would like to invite you to the upcoming ARTISTS LOUNGE at Full Moon Gallery on 05 February at 19:00. In addition to short guest lectures and screenings of the film portraits of the artists Aleksandra Vagabonda, Ana Pireva, Izabela Modrzewska, Karolin Kutteri and Augusto Gerardi, the ARTISTS LOUNGE is primarily about the exchange of ideas, networking and joint project development. Let’s get creative together.
The “Art is Us” project which started back in March 2021 with the aim of using the transformative force of culture for community regeneration to respond to the severe impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had both on artists and the cultural sector and on social inclusion and cohesion, invites artists, community leaders and art educators and other professionals of the CCSs to the Art for Local Innovation and Community Building Event on 05.02.2022 at 19:00 at KulturCentrale.
If you are an artist, a community leader, a cultural or creative professional or you represent a cultural/art/creative organisation and wish to connect with a creative and alternative community of artists in Dresden focused on supporting the local community through arts and cross-cultural dialogue and collaborate on multiple levels, then you are invited to join us on Sunday, 05.02.2023 at 14:00 at KulturCentrale (Hechstr. 17, 01097 Dresden).
You will have the chance to learn about the “Art is Us” project and find out how you can get involved and benefit from it as well as meet artists that were involved in the “Art is Us” project and will speak about how they interact and support their communities through their art. For this purpose the premiere showing of five short film portraits about the personal stories and social impact of five artists that were produced within the framework of this project will take place.
