Art in the age of virus!

The prevailing for months pandemic and restrictions do not have a positive effect on well-being and activity. However, the stagnation does not affect Żarów lovers and enthusiasts of the Japanese tradition of paper folding. This ancient art is timeless and as it turns out it can be a fantastic way to calm down and detach from reality. And the created works can not only please the eye, but also be an original gift idea.

According to above, the Commune Center for Culture and Sport in Żarów organized the Origami Festival for the 8th time. The motto for the works was the sentence: "Who can enjoy small things,  lives in a garden full of happiness". Contrary to fears, the interest in the competition was high, as 96 works from 16 towns and cities across Poland were submitted.

 “I look with admiration at the beautiful work that has been given to me after the Festival. We were very sorry that we could not participate in the workshops and observe how they were created. I remember previous editions where our employees and their children learned this beautiful art. I hope the next ones it will be ran normally. The organizers and participants can still count on our company's support, ”declares Atsushi Hatomoto, President of Daicel Safety System Europe, sponsor of the Origami Festival in Żarów.
