In the second deadline alert for Culture of Mobility programme that lasted from April 18 to June 15 this year, we waited for proposals of participation in foreign projects as part of artistic residencies, study visits, art reviews, conferences or other events and projects, thanks to which artists from Wrocław and Lower Silesia have the opportunity to develop their skills, present their activities and build international relations. In 2021, we introduced a significant change: applications for networking trips aimed at acquiring partners are also accepted!
