The Circles of Art Foundation was founded in 2010 as a means to create a space where art meets science. The permeating “circles of art” enable expressing various achievements in the arts, connecting music, theatre, film, visual arts and new media, as well as other interdisciplinary works. In the years 2010-2016, we organized 7 editions of the Festival of European Art Academies and Art “Circles of Art”, alongside which were 7 editions of the film festival “Wakacyjne Kadry” (Summer Frames) in Circles of Art. The festival hosted masters and students from 36 faculties of arts, artists from 19 countries of the world.
These circles continue to expand to different places in Poland and abroad, this time to China.
Head of the Circles of Art Foundation and the festival director is Wojciech Majewski, who has extensive experience in organizing cultural events on a broad scale – from benefit events of cultural figures to international festivals. As a long standing contributor of Polish Television, he specializes in films on art and artists. Since 2010, he has been head of the Circles of Art Festival, which has screened contemporary Chinese cinema (since 2013) and organized concerts with workshops: “The Home — a Way of Being. Poland – China”, with many renowned Polish and Chinese artists. Several years of collaborations with Chinese artists and popularizing Chinese culture in Poland resulted in creating the Polish Circles of Art in China Festival.
