4 December 2017 The last attractions of the Conrad Year celebrations
An exhibition on Joseph Conrad, a mural dedicated to the writer and a walk in the footsteps of this unique traveller. The last projects implemented as part of the celebration of this year’s round Joseph Conrad’s 160th birth anniversary are still ahead of us.
The events that took place so far, as well as those planned for the end of the year, cover different spheres of literature and culture. Their keynote is a journey understood as a life path of the writer, that had begun in Poland and led him to the most remote parts of the world.
ILLUSTRATING WORKSHOPS WITH JOANNA RUSINEK
On 6 December at 10.00 a.m. we would like to invite all children aged 7-10 to DeRevolutionibus bookshop to take part in illustrating workshops with Joanna Rusinek, who will take the youngest ones on a sea journey following the footsteps of Joseph Conrad. Joanna Rusinek is a Krakow designer, an illustrator of books for children, an author of press illustrations, book covers and posters, co-owner of Kreska-Kropka graphics studio and a graduate of the Faculty of Graphics at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow.
The number of participants is limited. Participation in the workshops is free, online registration on: firstname.lastname@example.org.
AN EXHIBITION ON JOSEPH CONRAD IN FRONT OF WYSPIAŃSKI PAVILLION
You can see an outdoor exhibition in a quaint All Saints Square, the historic centre of Krakow until 31st December. It is naturally dedicated to Conrad. On display-boards near Wyspiański Pavillion we can find, among others, some basic information on the writer and the places connected with him in Krakow. All that accompanied by characteristic graphics by Mateusz Kołek.
JOSEPH CONRAD MURAL
On 10 December there will be an official unveiling of the mural dedicated to Joseph Conrad, which will be incorporated in a creative climate of the post-industrial district Zabłocie in Krakow. The mural will be made by Artur Wabik, Krakow street artist, based on a graphic by Mateusz Kołek, Krakow young generation illustrator who has prepared a complete graphic design of the Conrad Year for the Krakow Festival Office.
