Day Camp at LKW Gallery is a part Art is Looking For YOU - a multidisciplinary educational event being carried out in two of Gdańsk’s districts: Lower Town, where Laznia CCA is located, and Nowy Port, the home of Laznia 2. During a wide assortment of workshops and events, the urban fabric of both districts will undergo artistic metamorphoses. Project co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of its Cultural Education programme.
 
Day Camp at LKW Gallery combines a series of interdisciplinary educational and artistic activities carried out in the outdoor studio of the LKW Gallery – a lorry nestled under a bridge in Lower Town. The project will allow local residents to spend their free time actively and creatively during the summer holidays. The workshops and artistic events accompanying the day camps seek to motivate participants to actively participate in changing the image of the district, which is neglected and at risk of becoming a zone of exclusion. These activities at the LKW Gallery this year will take the form of day camps. For two weeks, participants will reflect on answers to the question: If you could, what would you like to change or create in Lower Town?
