European Commission’s project WeAre#EuropeForCulture is partnering with Photoconsortium’s network to organize participatory events in various European cities, with the aim of creating exhibitions that include both institutional and crowdsourced heritage and which celebrate the diversity of European cultural heritage, by engaging citizens in the co-creation of cultural experiences. The series of exhibitions is a legacy from the activities of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
This exhibition is the Polish instance of the WeAre#EuropeForCulture series, and it was co-created with the students from Tadeusz Kościuszko Highschool in Krakow. The theme is free time outdoor. Summer holidays, vacations, and long weekends are ahead of us, time for sport and spending time with friends and family, finally outdoors, enjoying fresh air and greenery. The building of the old Shooting Range, where currently the Museum of Photography in Krakow is located, despite its military past, for years was the function of the building was sport and recreation. The building is located in Wola Justowska, Krakow area also associated with recreation and spending time outdoors – nearby are the Rudawa river, ZOO, forests, hills and walking and bike trails. There are many photographs corresponding with this topic in the collection of the Museum – amateur, family photos as well as commemorative photographs made by professional photographers and photoreportages from sports competitions. The topic of free time spent outdoors contains lazy picnic with a family as well as exhausting football match so every Cracovian can find in it something for himself. For holidays, let’s take a break from heavy topics and spend our free time watching and listening about how others did it in the past!
