A Space for Thought Foundation

About us

A Space for Thought Foundation (Fundacja Miejsce Uwagi) is an artistic journey to forgotten communities that once thrived in lands of today’s Poland. 

Cooperating with artists, we want to take off successive layers of cultural sediment, sift through them in search of worlds that no longer exist, look for the history of those people and their emotions.


Our mission is to uncover the stories of people and local communities order to commemorate them artistically. We want the sensibilities of musicians, visual artists, sculptors, photographers, painters, writers and poets to process history by creating works that speak to contemporary people.


Our vision is a country where every community finds its place through knowledge of the past. A world, where cultural diversity and historical heritage are an asset and a cornerstone for building a better future for all.
