2nd International Symposium on Modern Polish Society

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

September 11th at 1:30 pm, just after lunch
This is the second time we have asked prominent guests from Poland to present recent trends in social science and culture to our Cleveland community. Just like last year, this second symposium has developed from the collaboration of Dr. Edward Horowitz, Director of the Polish Studies Initiative, Cleveland State University; Dr. Kathy Farkas, “Invisible Groups in Today’s Poland”, Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, CWRU; and Gene Bak, Polish- American Cultural Center.
Everybody is welcome to come to the Center on Sept. 11 at noon to have lunch with our guests! Then join us for the presentation afterwards.
In this issue of Forum, you will find information about our guests and their presentations (below) as well as reflection papers written by Case Western Reserve University students who visited Poland this year as a part of the “Invisible Groups in Today’s Poland” travel-study program. There is also a reflection “paper” written by our guest, Ewa Sadkowska, concerning her family’s arrival to the United States. Maja and Zosia are the beautiful daughters of Ewa and her husband Lesław Tetla. You may meet them during the Symposium as well.
Speakers and their presentations
Łukasz Koperski, PhD student in the Institute of Sociology, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań. Member of the Polish Sociological Association and the Polish Association of Schools of Social Work. His research interests concern social policy, social economy, social contexts of disability, gerontology, and counseling in the media. Member of the research group realizing local public policy programs (diagnosis and strategies) in Poznań.
Title of talk: Social Economy in Poland: innovative examples of community involvement in solving local problems.
Abstract: The social economy is a rapidly growing sector combining two aspects: economic (economic development, goods production, reducing unemployment) and social (solving social problems, social inclusion, strengthening of social capital). The Polish social economy is one of the best functioning in the European Union. We can indicate innovative measures aimed at combining these aspects, including crowdfunding, corporate social responsibility, cause related marketing, and social revitalization. Such activities allow the inclusion of the public in the process of organizing support, moving away from the traditional principles of charity and strengthening local social capital.
Ewa Sadkowska – Manager, National Orchestra of Polish Radio, previously with Stanislaw Wyspiański Dramatic Theatre, responsible for sales and distribution, audience development, commercial events, sales strategy.
Title of talk: A successful transformation from an industrial city to Unesco City of Music
Abstract: The influence of quality of place on people’s perspectives on culture; the need to develop audiences and to encourage participation in cultural events through the use of effective strategies and audience segmentation; turning an area known for coal mines and industry into the best tourist site in Katowice, through revitalization

Lesław Tetla: visual artist, head of Interdisciplinary Actions Studio, Associate Professor, Dean of Faculty of Art, Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice

Title of talk: Artists behind bars

Abstract: Dick Higgins created the term intermedia, defining it as the actions placed between art and life, between artistic means of expression and the media through which human existence articulates itself. This anthropocentric way of perceiving art is very important in the work of the Katowice Academy’s Interdisciplinary Actions Studio, which, in its actions outside the walls of the school or galleries, in public space, enters into direct relation with specific places and the problems of people living in them. One of the most important socially oriented projects is the cooperation with the prison in Zabrze. The aim of this work is stimulation through art. Direct involvement of inmates in art projects is intended to ease tensions and prevent acts of aggression, as well as encourage them to read books and watch films.

 

Clödie Cleveland Concert

Clodie 2016 tour

Clödie wywodzi się z Krakowa. Zespół gra przede wszystkim muzykę rockową. Doświadczenie muzyczne tworzących go muzyków, ich szerokie horyzonty, różnorodne zainteresowania i ciągłe poszukiwanie nowych rozwiązań powodują, że grupy nie da się zaszufladkować przypisując do jednego gatunku. Grają mocne, pełne uczucia i pozytywnej energii utwory. Tworząc teksty i muzykę zespół szuka inspiracji w zwykłych wydarzeniach codziennego życia, komentując na swój sposób otaczającą nas rzeczywistość. 

Kapelę tworzą: 
1) Klaudia Trzepizur, wokalistka obdarzona znakomitym, charakterystycznym głosem, znana między innymi z udziału w Voice of Poland 
2)Paweł Remański – gitara prowadząca 
3) Olaf Olszewski – gitara solowa, 
4) Tomasz Budek – bass 
5) Marek Olma – perkusja.
6) Kazimierz Chludek – saksofon/ instrumenty klawiszowe
