Warsaw Bauhaus collaboration with Arden2
Arden2 is named after the Utopian art colony Arden established in 19th Century by the Polish born actress Helena Modjeska
Arden2 is a Southern California based nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated ( since 1996 ) to expanding cross-cultural understanding and exposure to the arts through global exchanges and through encouraging interdisciplinary cooperation between artists, academia and activists. We facilitate support and resources to individual artists and arts, heritage and creative organisations both in the United States as well as in Central and Eastern Europe ( Poland, Romania, Czechia, Germany and Ukraine.) Members are the foundation of our community support. As a non-profit 501(c)3 institution, Arden2 relies on the generosity of our community and grants.
Since 1996 Arden2 and its team has brought experimental theater to the Odyssey Theatre, City Garage Theatre in Santa Monica, The Getty Center, UCLA LIVE, REDCAT at The Disney Hall, the Orange County Museum of Art, MOCA and The Kennedy Center. We have brought over 80 US artists to Polish Theatre Festivals and cultural centers through a project arden2-city-acts-without-borders and Arden2 Artist Initiative supported by the Trust for Mutual Understanding.
In 2014 Arden2 started to collaborate with Warsaw Bauhaus -an incubator of new trends in performing arts. Together we have worked on a number of independent, grass-root collaborative projects including an on-going series of multidisciplinary ephemeral actions called Arden2-Utopia.
In 2021 Arden2 and Warsaw Bauhaus began collaboration on the Gropius Granary revitalisation project.
