A presentation of Polish culture in Brazil is the first major project organized by Culture.pl in South America. Its main objective is to increase the presence of Polish culture in Brazil, using as a starting point the rich heritage formed as a result of cooperation between outstanding representatives of both cultures. History shows that encounters between these two worlds, apparently so distant, can bring intriguing results and create original new art forms. In this context, the programme refers to the figures of Poles who have left their particular mark on the cultural landscape of Brazil, like Tadeusz Kantor, Zbigniew Ziembinski, Yanka Rudzka, Lucjan Korngold, Jorge Zalszupin, and Krzysztof Kieslowski. In 2016 we want to create opportunities for further encounters between the two cultures in order to give new impetus to Polish-Brazilian relations and provide an occasion to exchange inspirations. The programme is the result of collaboration between artists from both countries and will be implemented in six major Brazilian cities: São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador da Bahia, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba and Brasília.
