11:00 – 13:00 Theater workshop for young people, Hetman Jan Zamoyski High School No. 2 in Lublin, ul. Ogrodowa 16, conducted by: Edmund Kuryluk

The workshop will enable the participants to open up to the creation and searching for ways of realization. Theater (drama) as well as acting are defined in different ways and use various methodologies. Workshop leader – Edmund Kuryluk – claims that the youth theater should be based on the experience, responsiveness and psyche of the people who make it. Therefore, during the workshop, the leader will stimulate creativity, openness, rejecting creative clichés and acting masks.

12:00 – 13:30 Artistic workshop for seniors, “Bronowice” Cultural Center in Lublin - “Maki” Workshops of Culture, ul. Olchowa 8, Lublin, conducted by: Anna Chabros-Piłat.

Can one touch a color with a shape? Can one smell the sound? Can art affect the senses? In the course of the workshop the participants will find answers to these and many other questions. The title of the workshop refers to three senses that will be activated during the workshop – touch, sound and smell. Each child will prepare its own original work that will allow him or her to sense the world in a new way.

15:40 – 18:40 "Word starting with L – a diaporama workshop for young people", Junior High School No. 18 in Lublin, al. Jana Długosza 8, Lublin, conducted by: Radosław Bułtowicz

Do you want to learn something new? Create your own multimedia show? Feel like an artist on stage? If your answer is "yes" THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR YOU!
And what does “diaporama” mean? It is a projection of static images using at least two analogue projectors – the same that are used in churches today. Slideshows come with accompanying audio. From such a well-thought combination comes a show which is something between photography and film! The workshop will result in an analogue show made by the participants.
And what does the mysterious word starting with L mean? You will come to know that at the workshop!
And here's what the finished show looks like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tHnr1Pp6Gg  /fragm. występu z poznańskiej Malty/

16:00 – 19:00 "How to tell a story? A word that is matter that is an activity" – workshop of performance art for adults, Galeria Labirynt, ul. ks. J. Popiełuszki 5, Lublin, conducted by: Paweł Korbus.

A word that is matter that is an activity. This syllogism is based on an unobvious communication that leads through seemingly divergent issues. The starting point is the imagination and intuition, which is verbalised and then turned into a magma with creative potential. The next step is to launch it in the structures of artistic activity. The workshop will be based on searching for the potential of transformation in what is stable, identifying and naming feelings, giving the dynamics to words and articulation of ideas. The workshop will point the way to performance art with an accent on language, object and body.

16:00 – 18:00 “Painting in a macro scale” - artistic family workshop for children aged 3-6, Galeria Labirynt, ul. ks. J. Popiełuszki 5, Lublin, conducted by: Krystian Kamiński.

Can one paint the picture with fly-flaps? How do you make stamps yourself? Is it possible to paint a picture that is three meters long? During the workshop, the participants will slip into the role of painters and perform their own works with the use of unusual tools. The aim of the workshop is to develop manual skills and spatial imagination, familiarize with untypical painting techniques and learn to observe the surrounding world without given schemes.

16:00 – 18:00 "Flying paintings" – workshop for children aged 6-12, “Bronowice” Cultural Center in Lublin, ul. Krańcowa 106, Lublin, conducted by: Paulina Janowska, Natalia Wiśniewska

During the workshop, the participants will briefly discuss the art of Jacob Hashimoto and then create modular installations inspired by the artist's work. The participants will see that there are artworks that are not painted with paints and do not have to hang on the wall. Each of the participants will have the opportunity to interpret the theme in a free manner and create a unique element of joint installation. The workshop aims in developing children's imagination and supporting manual skills, allows for creative experiments inspired by contemporary art as well as free expression of young artists.

16:00 – 18:00 "What a monstrous book" – book-making family workshop for children aged 3-6, Hieronim Łopaciński Provincial Public Library, Branch No. 37, ul. Bazylianówka 85, Lublin, conducted by: Katarzyna Krzywicka

During the workshop, the children and their parents will create multi-headed ungulates with ten noses and mouths instead of ears. Yuck, what an ugly thing! The participants will get to know the monsters and quirky words from the book titled "Pora na potwora" ("Time for a Monster") by Daniel and Aleksandra Mizielińscy and get inspired by the illustrations from the mentioned book while preparing their own family artworks. The children will design a monstrous book together and create their own quirky words. They will find out that "ugly" and "I-didn’t-do-it-right" are part of the artistic process. They will get dirty and laugh. We hope that after the workshop, the families will reach for a library bookcase or a book collection at their homes to get to know other children's books and get inspired by them in their crazy artworks.

17:00 – 18:30 "Skipping classes in Andersen – acting workshops for young people", H. Ch. Andersen Theatre in Lublin, Plac Teatralny 1, Lublin, conducted by: Piotr Bublewicz.
