Creative Waves

Creative Waves - project effects

Creative Waves - Baltic Sisterhood for Change supports the creative and social activity of women, making it easier for them to find their place in the digital world. The project reaches female artists and activists operating in centers distant from the centers, supports building a network of connections between them and makes it easier for them to present their activities on the Internet. All this to strengthen the role of women in the process of building healthier communities and a friendlier space. Who creates the Polish version of the project?

Behind every cultural event and project there is a person, there is a team ... Creative Waves is a special undertaking that - entirely devoted to women - it is also entirely created by women. Some of us can be seen clearly, others remain hidden. It's high time we got to know / get to know each other:
