Kitchen in Praga district
We want to create a kitchen where everyone can find their own dishes. We recognize the kitchen as a space where different cultures meet. It is important for us to have as many cultures as possible in our space.
Therefore, we invite everyone who would like to get acquainted with different cultures by eating our cuisine.

Project "Kijowska" Dima Levytskyi
The project “Kijowska” revolves around forms and representations of locality in a globalized city. Our attention is drawn to one of the largest migration waves in the modern history of Europe, namely, the movement of Ukrainians to Poland in the last five years. According to different sources, the number of migrants from Ukraine reaches at least 2 million people. In conditions when migration affects most indicators of the sustainable development of society, we want to think about the opportunities that it carries and the issues that it poses.
Kijowska street in Warsaw Praga district becomes for us a topological prop. Speaking about migration, we inevitably encounter issues of urbanization, the presence or absence (lack) of public (private) space, models of neighborhood relations and socio-political barriers. Praga district gives us the opportunity to carry out this conversation.
The project consists of a series of meetings in the Praga area in the format of a build up community dweller co-organized with local partners. The main value of these encounters for us is to strengthen up social ties and to foster cultural exchanges between residents. We are interested as well in the ways of making a communal representation possible. The series of meetings will conclude with an event, during which participants will be invited to pose together for a “collective photo”.
The artistic part of the project “Kijowska” takes a form of an audio walk held in the Praga area. The team of artists, led by Kiev-based director Dima Levytskyi, proposes this form of site-specific theatre in order to root and to comprehend the peculiarities of migrant living in Warsaw within a shared urban space.
