Art Wednesday is a project aimed at creating an informal setting for open dialogue. The participants choose the format of the event themselves: it can be a presentation, exhibition, film screening, performance, lecture, and/or discussion. Art Wednesday’s goal is to provide the space for creative people to display their artistic practices. That is also an opportunity for them to share their current researches or ideas, to find like-minded audiences or to receive expert feedback.
