the present times are challenging for everybody. For women even more. Especially in Poland where political debate and administrative practice often aim to reduce the rights and funding for the organizations that support them. The Katarzyna Kozyra Foundation, as you know, was created to support the work of its founder and female artists in general, especially young people, when they need more support and guidance. Many of its initiatives, such as the series of exhibtions Women Commentators, gave voice to young Russian and Ukrainian artists, where freedom of expression is not always allowed. One of the most recent projects done by the Foundation, Little Chance to Advance, has clearly shown an enormous underrepresentation of women among Art Academia teachers. The cuts in financing NGO's for social and cultural support for women make the action of the Katarzyna Kozyra Foundation even more necessary. That is why I ask you to join our foundation support program with a donation of minimum 1000 zloty to allow the foundation to implement a program to support women artists consisting of research projects, residences, exhibitions and seminars listed below.
As a sign of gratitude for your commitment, we will honor you with the exclusive access to a range of specially dedicated activities organized by the Foundation and the possibility of getting a piece of my work.
I thank you so much for your support, which will allow many artists to continue working, developing, and hoping for a better future.
