ABOUT

What is artBLAB:

artBLAB runs a series of laid-back lectures about art and its whereabouts. At the artBLAB events -  in-person and online - artists, and art professionals representing various disciplines come together to celebrate creativity. We present both emerging and well-established creatives. We love networking - our event connects artists and art aficionados that wouldn't otherwise meet.

artBLAB also means poetry, in every shape and form. From poetry readings, exhibitions, and zoom meet-ups, to our new baby, Beyond Text Poetry Festival in Folkestone. 

Soon, artBLAB will also run a series of art meditations, that combines art history class, Slow Art looking exercises, and traditional meditation and mindfulness techniques. 

 

What we believe:

artBLAB believes in art equality, it doesn't discriminate against any type of art - we love experimental poetry as much as we adore interaction design! We believe in the talent, and not in the position on the art scene or within academia. Lastly, we believe great things happen at intersections, that's why we encourage speakers to collaborate on future art projects and we mix various audiences.

Who we are:

artBLAB is organised by two human beings passionate about art, Michal Kamil Piotrowski and Marta Grabowska.

Michal is a tech and visual poet, and most importantly, the father and driving force behind artBLAB and Beyond Text Poetry Festival in Folkestone. You can chat with him @somecoolwords and view his art and support him on Ko-fi.

Marta is an independent curator and art historian, who loves networking and started artBLAB:online. Marta is a believer in the power of Slow Art and our art meditation guru. See what she is up to @martuga.grabowska
