ALBUM NEIGHBOURS Art Against War
On our initiative, a unique charity album has been created, featuring 114 artists from seven European countries. This is the only publication of its kind in the world, which includes illustrations created against the war in Ukraine. All proceeds from album sales go to help children fleeing war, in cooperation with Martyna Wojciechowska's UNAWEZA Foundation.
In March 2022, we brought together more than a hundred artists from Poland, Ukraine, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova and Belarus, to create an international, charitable project in the form of extraordinary albums in two edition versions: collector's edition and standard edition. Artistic direction of the polygraph manifesto was assumed by Patryk Hardziej – internationally active, multidisciplinary illustrator, graphic designer and researcher and lecturer at the Academy of Arts in Gdansk. 114 artists from Ukraine and neighboring countries have created unique works, directly opposing the ongoing war. On more than 140 pages of beautifully published albums, you will find the works of famous female artists and creators. Among others, the project involves Beata Śliwińska (Barrakuz), Aleksander Małachowski, Bolesław Chromry, ZBIOK, Paweł Jońca, Bartosz Kosowski, Andrzej Pągowski, Gosia Herba, Hanna Kmieć and the foreign representation was fueled by, among others, Loreta Isac, Kristína Uhráková and Maks Graur. Ukrainian artists, on the other hand, are represented by, among others:
Anna Sarvira, Mari Kinovych, Sashko Danylenko, Alexey Kondakov, Masha Reva, NEIVANMADE, Oleksandr Grekhov, Anton Logov.
In May 2023, the NEIGHBOURS album won the prestigious MUST HAVE poll award, which is awarded to the best designed Polish products.
MUST HAVE is the independent and most recognized quality mark in Poland and abroad.
All income from the sale of albums is donated to Martyna Wojciechowska's UNAWEZA Foundation, to help Ukrainian children evacuated
from orphanages and children from foster families.
The NEIGHBOURS project has already raised and donated the sum of 150,000 pln to the UNAWEZA Foundation. Join the extraordinary group of Neighbors!
