- In my BA Thesis, I focuses on describing theatrical project creation from practical and artistic points of view. I am a member of only the second class at the University of Gdańsk, that can receive their diploma by creating a cultural event - Daria Zakrzewska wrote in the summary of her thesis. – Initially, under the project events educating people on the broad subject of theater were supposed to be held, together with the theater festival lasting for three days. I wanted to show that theater does not only mean outstanding directors, actors or plays but also form of having fun and therapy. The intention of the project was to organize a festival, involving two-day workshops, integration and theatrical review.

And she made it. The 1st edition of ‘Figuratywni’ festival took place on 5-7 April 2019 and over 50 university and high school students participated. The originator of ‘Figuratywni’ project also co-creates Ster na Kulturę (Steer for Culture) Project.
