In 2006 Monika founded ArtPolonia which provides professional organisation, support and promotion of cultural events and initiatives aimed at the Polish Community as well as a wider audience with an interest in Polish culture.
A long term goal is also to provide the opportunities for Irish artists to present their work in Poland and other countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
Monika is focused on how the cultural environment can be used as a tool to enrich people’s lives, broaden horizons and knowledge as well as to increase capacity for tolerance, communication and mutual understanding. Through ArtPolonia she facilitates exhibitions, concerts, installations, readings, workshops and the presentation of film or animation. Services also include programming of events and promotion and coordination of cultural activities and PR within the Polish Community.
I aim to provide the Polish and Irish living in Ireland with the opportunities to learn about each other’s cultures, traditions, contemporary arts and above all – to provide them with the opportunity to meet through shared projects and initiatives.
