Creative Summer 2020 is running from June 29 - July 25.

Shakespeare Club...

In the fall we will be starting new Shakespeare Clubs. The project is divided into three acts. Act I - children play theater games to stretch their imagination, build their confidence and develop vocal range. Act II - children read Shakespeare stories and begin to re-imagine scenes. Act III - the entire team visits Shakespeare's home in England and rehearses for the final performance in Park Grabiszynski.

Story Center...

...is partnering with organizations across Wroclaw this year to slowly build a big project in 2020. Our first partnership is with Fundacja Ukraina and Centrum Ukraińskie Kultury i Rozwoju.

We performed ALICE - a storytelling adventure - with books, music, and toys. Following the reading we hosted a Mad Hatter Workshop with Ukrainian artist Людмила Безусько. Children made their own crazy hats to take home.

We believe there are many amazing books that every child should hear out loud. We have been collecting some of the best children’s books from around the world and bringing them to Poland. Now we are dreaming up ways to share these stories through music, theater, and activities.

Arts & Culture...

... are important ingredients in developing creative thinking and empathy. We can deliver a bespoke arts program at your school designed to expand student’s appreciation of traditional arts and and cultural diversity. Chuseok, Diwali, Thanksgiving, Hinamatsuri, and Marzanna are enjoyed at interactive assemblies where there might be singing, dancing, music, storytelling or games.

Creative Winter...

...ran from January 28- February 1, 2019.

Based on our successful summer arts program, we offered one week of workshops and classes for children ages 8-15.

The program was taught in English and had a 4-1 student to teacher ratio with native Polish speakers for language support. Classes were led by international artists and teachers with years of experience. Young apprentices (16-20) supported teachers and model creative thinking for the students.

About us

In 2013...

Fundacja Aardvark Arts began as a platform for creatives who are making artwork that crosses borders and brings people together. When cooperating with artists, the foundation serves as a producing entity or consulting agency. Groups that Aardvark Arts has supported include: Odra Ensemble, Jubilo Project, and Studio Matejka.

In 2015 the foundation started partnering with other non profit education institutions. TheaterLab for the Foundation for International Education (Fundacja Edukacji Międzynarodowej) and Prospectus are two activities which combined theater making and English learning for students ages 8-15. In 2016 Shakespeare Club continued this exploration of blending a creative activity with a learning opportunity. In 2018 Aardvark Arts ran the first edition of Creative Summer | Kreatywne Lato – a summer arts program and cultural exchange. This fall Aardvark Arts will open the Wroclaw Story Center – a performance space and children’s library housed at NAVIGO Center for Innovative Education.

We love...

...technology here at Aardvark Arts. Not as a toy but as a tool. It has so much power and potential to connect and to create.

Creative Winter

art matters now


What is Creative Winter?

It's a solution to the problem of not enough creative thinking in schools. Creative Winter is a week long art program in Wrocław for children 8-15, where they get to choose what to make and explore.

Noontime Show

Who runs it?

The program is run by Aardvark Arts, a non profit foundation exploring the intersection of arts, culture, education and technology.

Last year we started Creative Summer - an international month-long arts program. Watch our video about what we do and why we think creativity is so important.

What will students learn?

The focus of the program is to foster creative thinking. Through a wide variety of classes we teach students "creative moves" that can be used for any project or assignment.

the departments

Why is it in English?

Grammar books will only get you so far. We think learning English through creative play is the best.

We have a 4-1 student-to-teacher ratio and small classes for personalized attention. Every class will have a Polish speaker as a teacher or apprentice.

When does it take place?

The program runs during the Wrocław public school holiday from January 28 – February 1. Classes are from 9:00-4:30 each day. Students may arrive at 8:30 and stay until 5:00.


What does the program cost?

It's expensive. Our main cost is the team. We work with professional artists from Poland and abroad; teachers who have extensive non formal education experience; emerging artists who show talent, potential and passion for working with young people; and young apprentices who have a creative spirit.

Discounts and pricing

First 10 enrollments get 25% discount. 750zł per student

Next 10 enrollments get 15% discount. 850zł per student

Czym jest Kreatywna Zima?

To odpowiedź na problem niewystarczającej ilości kreatywnego myślenia w szkole. Kreatywna Zima to tygodniowy projekt artystyczny we Wrocławiu dla dzieci w wieku 8-15 lat, w którym mogą wybrać, co chcą robić i odkrywać.

Noontime Show

Czyj to pomysł?

Program prowadzi Fundacja Aardvark Arts, organizacja pozarządowa zajmująca się obszarem, gdzie zbiegają się sztuka, kultura, edukacja i technologia.

W 2018 roku otworzyliśmy Kreatywne Lato- międzynarodowy miesięczny program artystyczny. Obejrzyj filmik pokazujący, co robimy i dlaczego uważamy, że kreatywność jest taka ważna.

Czego nauczą się uczestnicy?

Program skupia się na wspieraniu kreatywnego myślenia. Poprzez szeroki wachlarz damy uczestnikom zestaw “kreatywnych narzędzi” które można wykorzystać w każdym projekcie czy zadaniu.

the departments

Dlaczego po angielsku?

Książki do gramatyki są od gramatyki. Wierzymy, że nauka angielskiego przez kreatywną zabawę jest najlepsza.

Na 1 prowadzącego przypada 4 dzieci, pracujemy w małych salach, dajemy spersonalizowaną uwagę. W każdej grupie będzie nauczyciel lub stażysta mówiący po polsku.

Kiedy odbywa się Kreatywna Zima?

Projekt odbędzie się w czasie ferii zimowych we Wrocławiu od 28 stycznia do 1 lutego 2019. Zajęcia prowadzone są od 9 do 16.30. Uczestnicy mogą być z nami od 8.30 do 17.


Ile kosztuje program?

Jest drogi. Główny koszt to zespół. Pracujemy z artystami z Polski i zagranicy, z nauczycielami o szerokim doświadczeniu w edukacji pozaformalnej, młodymi utalentowanymi twórcami z potencjałem i pasją do pracy z dziećmi i młodzieżą oraz kreatywnymi stażystami.

Why arts?

Creativity is a skill that anyone can learn. It's not limited to people who are gifted. It's not only valued in the arts, but also other fields as well such as business and science.
