Born and raised in the city of Warsaw, Katarzyna Korytowska is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts, with a major in Culture of Place, which emphasizes developing a sense of civic responsibility. She has spent two years working at the Warsaw Museum of Modern Art as an education department contributor, helping visitors to expand their understanding of the exhibitions. Since early 2017, Katarzyna is co-creating a project called Synergy, the aim of which is to raise awareness and counteract hostile rhetoric toward societal groups in need, especially migrants and women. She has successfully organized five multidimensional music events, including one in Berlin, which engaged several thousand people and raised more than 22,000 Polish Złoty for charity. Currently, she is preparing the largest event so far in a botanical garden, which is dedicated to ecology and the protection of environment. After the program, Katarzyna plans to obtain a Master’s degree at the Department of Culture Animation with socially engaged projects.
