From a review by dr Katarzyna Pastuszak, supervisor:
The thesis entitled 'Art therapy for the busy - an analysis of the animation project Gdańsk visually with particular emphasis on the artistic and media part' is a report on the realisation of the animation project summarised with a vernissage at the Orunia Station of the Gdańsk Archipelago of Culture. The bachelor's project presented in the thesis is an interesting and innovative example of enabling access to artistic activity for various groups of recipients in the era of post-pandemics and social tensions resulting from the current geopolitical situation. Particularly valuable is the theoretical introduction, in which the author presents the Gdańsk project visually in the context of the condition of culture in the 21st century and the situation of a post-pandemic man.
