Project SHOP at CEA Łaźnia in Nowy Port

Project SHOP is the next event realized within the framework of The Outdoor Gallery of the City of Gdańsk in CEA Łaźnia in Nowy Port. On 25th September we invite you to attend a vernissage and a lecture by Ion Sørvin, founder of Copenhaggen group N55.

N55 is an artistic collective active in Copenhagen since 1994. The group perceives art as part of everyday life. Their projects, which are then published in Manuals placed on the website www. N55.dk and thus made available on the basis of Open Source for those who want to work together, building on the ideas of alternative economy and open access to the means of production. In this way the project SHOP arose.

“The City Speaks” – new edition of walking tours around Gdańsk

“The City Speaks” walking tours start again. We’re about to visit three districts of Gdańsk: Wrzeszcz, Biskupia Górka and Dolne Miasto. The first two walks will already take place in September.

Owing to the illness of our guide, Karolina Pochwatka, we had to temporarily suspend “The City Speaks” cycle. On 12 September the walking tours start again in a new format. Our guide will be Jakub Szczepański, a historian of architecture.

The main objective of the walking tours is to present those districts of Gdańsk that are situated beyond the general scope of interest. The project is aimed at both local inhabitants and visitors to the city. During the walking tours, you will be able to get to know the history of the given district and jointly discover those out-of-the-way parts of Gdańsk..
