“Nest In!” – workshops by Dominika Kulczyńska

Autor: Culture Zone Wrocław

On 7.04 we invite you to the Zakwas Studio for the "Nest In!" workshops conducted by Dominika Kulczyńska. This event refers to the "Migratory species" exhibition organized in the Tętno Art and Design Gallery, as part of which Kulczyńska presented a series of works and objects related to the subject of urban birds’ species and their relationship with humans.

Although it may appear that cities are far from being a natural habitat, this urbanised space is home to many animal species. One of them is the common house martin (Delichon urbicum). Its presence affects the harmony of the urban ecosystem, as well as the condition of people’s lives. Unfortunately, in recent years the number of swallows and other birds inhabiting Polish cities has been drastically decreasing. One of the reasons for the decline in the presence of swallows in cities is the decreasing amount of available mud, which these birds use to build their nests.

During the workshops we will make nests for house martins. Each participant will be able to take one home with them and hang it in the chosen place to invite the birds back to their neighbourhood.
