Kosciuszko Foundtation in Washington DC - Art and Culture During Global Pandemic

Art and Culture During Global Pandemic

Looking back on the KF Washington DC Online Programs

The Kosciuszko Foundation's mission of promoting Polish culture in the United States has just gotten a deeper meaning. By being forced to move online, we not only expanded beyond the boundaries of our traditional communities and became a more visible culture carrier on a global scale, but we also contributed to attempts to restore the well-being of our fellow humans in this time of crisis. 

Such is a role of art and culture, among other things: to help us go beyond our individual stories, overcome isolation, and reestablish a feeling of belonging. 

As our entire world got sick, we needed to focus on healing. 

During confusion and chaos, we need art and culture more than ever, to remind us of what's eternal and to bring back some meaning to our lives.

I am extremely grateful to a small group of the Kosciuszko Foundation, Washington DC members, who came on board to help me. Together we were able to produce several series of online programs. We quickly established a well working team, where its members contributed their talents, time, energy, and heart to bring to life 35 virtual programs.

Thank you: Anna Tarnawska, Iza Eisman, Martin Labazevitch, and Leszek Strzelecki, as well as our media partner Re-Think Classical.
