About the Festival

1st edition of the „Polish Circles of Art in China” Festival

Polish Circles of Art

Welcome to the 1st edition of the „Polish Circles of Art in China” Festival, which will take place on October 16th –  November 4th in China. The idea of the festival is to extensively promote Poland in China. We want to raise interest in our country through Polish culture and art.
An impulse to tighten our cooperation is the “Silk Road 2.0” initiative, part of an impressive Chinese geopolitical project, termed the “New Silk Road” or the concept of “One belt, One road”. Poland is China’s key partner in this framework.

These “circles of art” are a symbol of permeating arts, presented during the festival: visual arts, music and film. We invited acclaimed artists in each of these fields.
The Circles of Art Foundation strives to ingrain Polish culture in the consciousness of Chinese audiences. We want Poland to be perceived not just as the homeland of Fryderyk Chopin, but also as a country in which 200 years after the famous composer, there still are works that inspire artists around the world.
There is a good chance that the festival will become a recurring event.
It received the honorary patronage of the Marshal of the Senate of the Republic of Poland, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland, the Poland-China Parliamentary Group of the 8th term Sejm of the Republic of Poland, and the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development.

Media patrons: TVP SA., TVP Polonia, Wirtualna Polska.

The performance space on the first ground seating over 1,000, while art exhibitions are mounted on the upper levels. most concert held here include the instrumental & vocal music, Western and Chinese. In concert hall, a lower platform reduces the space between performer and audience. A 15-panel reflective board hung above the stage in three groups sends sound waves from below to every corner of the hall, maximizing the acoustic effect.
