FROM EAST TO WEST WITH LOVE is a 9 month curatorial
project directed by Emilia Moniszko and co-directed by Rob
Hamp. This project has emerged from a growing cultural
sector response to Eastern and Central European migrations
and their implications for cultural policy, particularly in

FETWWL is a platform for one-off events, exhibition,
discussion groups, film screenings as well as an open
forum. In collaboration with Kalejdoskop East – West we
have created an open call for short films responding to
the concepts of Fusion, Collision, Translation, Adaptation
and Transition. A selection of films will be screened on
27th September at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in
Coventry, UK, as well as on the 28th at Kino Bodo in Łódź,

The East-West Open Forum delivered in conjunction with FACETS
talks, will consist of a panel of creative practitioners and
academics, creating an opportunity for the local cultural
community to learn, engage, question and identify with
the current changes in culture and the opportunities that
Eastern and Western European mobility provides for the
cultural and creative industries.

Through this intervention we seek to transform the
exhibition space The Glass Box Gallery into an intersection
of East and West, where the audience can experience and
engage with the realities (both current and potential)
of this interconnection. The two sides strive to highlight
their identities in a current political climate of flux and
uncertainty. The reality of a huge East-West demographic
coming together.
