It was during the first few weeks of the Coronavirus lockdown and just before the Easter school holiday on 2 April 2020 that we received the good news from the Consulate of the Republic of Poland in Edinburgh – our major POLSKI project funder. We were awarded an emergency grant through our curatorial partnesrhip with the Polish Contemporary Art Organisation to try and continue Anna Danielewicz‘s performance art residency with Primary 4 from 21 April to 30 June 2020 but online, in their virtual classroom.
We couldn’t be more excited to start planning the sequel on our initial work held in their classroom and the school’s shared artroom. How could Primary 4 continue devising the new performance art piece while staying at home yet attending Anna’s new residency? Watch this space.
