Extra Funds for Art and Culture in Łódź!!
January 23, 2010
The Office of the Marshal of the Voivodeship of Łódź (Łódzki Urząd Marszałkowski) has increased funds for cultural initiatives for the following year! There is an open call for submissions with project ideas, which can span the fields of culture, art, creative promotion, education and cultural education. It is the largest increase in funds for the competition in the city’s history: 600,000PLN. 200,000PLN have been designated for Chopin Year celebrations.
In the first half of February, the Department of Culture and Education will announce a contest for festival grants, the winner of which will receive 950,000PLN. There will be another contest in the second half of February for conservation and restoration projects on historical buildings in Łódź. Two million złotys will be designated for this purpose (!)

By the way, I finally got around to posting links to PDF’s of my Fulbright Personal Statement and Statement of Grant Purpose — in English and Polish! You can find them on my blog, under A Little Background.
