    Migrart.waw.pl – portal presenting male and female migrant artists has a new, nationwide version! Together with Staromiejski Dom Kultury, Promo Gallery and other institutional partners, we are planning networking meetings, workshops for artists and Polish language classes for creative people in the coming months. Migrart was created to connect artists of different origins with representatives of the world of culture and art in Warsaw, but also in other Polish cities!
