Kordegarda (English: guardhouse), a part of National Centre of Culture, is a very involved and a very young place. It cultivates and supports actions which back up young art and actions for the society. For example: now there is an art exhibition by Mirosław Bałka, one of the best-known Polish artists, who for this occasion chose works of young artists from the Art Academy (ASP) in Warsaw. In this way a very established name in the world of art promotes new artists.
What I personally find very interesting about Kordegarda is their book swap – bring one, take one. You can get rid of unwanted and disliked books and take some back with you.
For those of you who have just finished their studies Kordegarda offers courses in CV- and application-writing and lectures on state insurance. Make sure you check their website for more workshops, concerts and exhibitions!
During all their activities you can also add your mail address to the data bank of Kordegarda and get informed about their activities.
