Jewish Literary Salon
Jewish Association Czulent created space for open discussions about literature, meetings with writers with Jewish origin or writing about Jewish life.
Jewish Literary Salon was an integral part of Cracow’s Kazimierz cultural life. Salon was working from 2006 till 2014. It was a place for open discussions about literature, meetings with writers with Jewish origin or writing about Jewish life.
This meeting are a great opportunity for learning about modern literature, gaining better understanding and discussions on important and sometimes hard topics. Broadly defined Jewish topics were both Jewish history, life in Israel, politics, religion, art and modern Jewish life as well as the problem of identity.
Artists, during their talk with Anna Makówka- Kwapisiewicz, presented their opinions on art, literature, Jewish culture, very often engaging audience in discussion. The meeting in March with Agnieszka Graff was included in Polish nationwide program organized by Porozumienie Kobiet 8 Marca.
In 2009 we broaden our program by inviting a photographer, publisher and critic Wojciech Wilczyk to talk about his recently published photo album about synagogues in Poland. We decided to start inviting artists who work with visual arts.
In 2010 the project was financed by Ministerstwo Kultury i Dziedzictwa Narodowego (Ministry of Culture and National Heritage).
project implemented between 2006 and 2014
