Warsaw Gallery Weekend (WGW) is an event we look forward to all year. During the last weekend of September (28th of September to 1st of October), visitors can view contemporary art exhibitions at 37 independent galleries scattered around Warsaw. We talk to the person who knows all about WGW. Joanna Witek-Lipka, director of WGW, has been running the event for the past five years.
Warsaw Gallery Weekend is for everyone
“There’s something magical about working with contemporary art – you get to interact with incredibly sensitive and imaginative people,” she says. “Despite all kinds of difficulties that come with putting on events, it’s an extremely satisfying job. Everyone on my team knows what they’re doing, we all know WGW inside out, and we’re well aware of what areas we need to develop further. This year, we're focusing on greater inclusivity. Some events will be translated into Polish sign language, and we’ll also ensuring better access for people with disabilities.”
