„Open people's hearts. That's all!”
Heart For Art is a unique project which was launched in February 2022. Its beneficiaries are people of the pen supported by the Wisława Szymborska Foundation.
As part of the campaign, a series of unique T-shirts is sold by the Capricorn Arthouse on its website. 100% of the profits from the sale of the first 100 T-shirts will support the grant fund of the Wisława Szymborska Foundation.
The campaign also aims to launch a public debate on art, life, dialogue and freedom. The organizers of the campaign are Agnieszka Marszałek and Monika Palikot, founders of Capricorn Arthouse.
The campaign ambassadors are Andrzej Chyra, Jarosław Mikołajewski, Artur Rojek and Michał Rusinek, president of the board of the Wisława Szymborska Foundation. Mariusz Treliński and Mirosław Zbrojewicz have also joined the group of the action's supporters. More people of culture and art are being invited to cooperate on this initiative.
The author of the portraits of the ambassadors is Jacek Poremba.
The Wisława Szymborska Foundation
The Wisława Szymborska Foundation was founded in April 2012, on the basis of a will left by the Nobel Prize winner. According to the poet's will, the board of the Foundation was composed of Michał Rusinek, Teresa Walas and Marek Bukowski. The tasks of the Foundation include taking care of the literary heritage of Wisława Szymborska, as well as popularizing and educational activities in the field of promoting Polish culture, literary and scientific works, and reading in Poland and abroad, as well as supporting the idea of tolerance and the culture of dialogue in public life.
Beginning in 2013, the Foundation has been granting the Wisława Szymborska Award for a volume of poetry published in Polish, or translated into Polish. As part of its Relief Fund, the Foundation also provides financial assistance to writers and translators in difficult financial situations, as well as grants the Adam Włodek Award to young writers, translators and literary scholars.
With one surprising comment,
she can reveal the aura of the object she is looking at,
and this feature, the twist, exudes from all her clothes.
They leap straight into the heart of the matter!
For her, everything that exists is like a tape
that rewinds modern myths;
iconic pop culture situations.
