Cycle of artistic workshops 2. Mobile Gallery of Modern Art 3. Numerous meetings with artists representing varied medias Main goal of the project is to spread art and educate Europeans, living in countryside, by contact with the modern art. With our program, we want to include people, who have a rare contact with art. Main element of our project will be a mobile gallery- a big tent or container – mobile place for all events: workshops, exhibitions and meetings with artists. 1. Workshops- varied medias, for children and adults, organized by students from partnership countries. Our purpose is to educate local people, familiarize them with art and invite them to the other parts of the project. We also want to find the most talented children and help them to find grants for artistic education.

derstandable and make people to stop being afraid of modern art. We want to teach them art language and tell them how to interpret art. Very important for us is a contact with populace- we want to talk, but we also want to listen to and being known their thinking about art and encourage them to reveal us their needs.
