The Association of Creative Initiatives „ę”

Description:Since 2002, we have been realizing socio-cultural project all over Poland. We train, give grants, publish books, create and promote new models of activity in the sphere of culture. We carry out projects arising from our passions and the way in which we observe the world. We remain loyal to values, which are important to us: authenticity, high quality of proposals and getting satisfaction out of what we do. We run a network of animateurs in the entire country. We have long time partners. Our experience and skills let us experiment, outline new trends and implement new projects. Our goals are grouped in three themes: Young Creatives Cooperative is an alternative production studio, in which we create good conditions for young creatives to develop. Our rule is to see projects through „form the idea to realization”. We organise workshops, open shows, portfolio reviews, coaching sessions, we produce film debuts and photographic projects („Poland.doc”, „Videonotations”, „Photopresentations”, „Snapshots”). We promote young documentary work in Poland and abroad. Citizens In Action is a laboratory of socio-cultural projects. Within its framework, animateurs realize their own projects in their neighbourhoods, cities or the entire country. We run grant and micro-grant projects („Seniors in Action”, „Young Managers of Culture”, „Animatornia’s Laboratory”). We have created the network of Flying Cultural Animateurs, gathering experienced trainers from all over the country, to support the local leaders. Open Cultural Sector is a think thank creating new solutions for culture („Zoom on the cultural centres”, „Laboratory of Change”, „Animator in Residence”). We carry out participatory projects aiming to engage people who work in the cultural sector, residents, researchers, and local government. Together we work out new strategies for action in cultural in- stitutions (local cultural centres, libraries, universities of the third age).
