Events Archive

Magna Żmien regularly produces and participates in events, activities and workshops. We often reach out to the public in the form of workshops and discussion events, not only to gather information but also to advise people on how to access their old collections of photographs, films and audio and to teach younger generations what these formats were and how they were used to communicate. Below are a selection of the events and exhibitions that we have produced or participated in.
