SQUARE OF FREEDOM
The Square of Freedom is a cultural and educational place in Warsaw dedicated to Belarusian community, where they can organise language classes, concerts or exhibitions. It’s the first informal activity as such undertaken in Poland. The creation of the square is a response to Pieremien Square - a Minsk alley, famous for its self-organization and various activities for the revolution in Belarus, since August 2020 it has self-organized and acted in various ways, defendin the famous graffiti “DJ of change”. The informal pin on the map that marks the location of the Square is the sculpture Ў, a form of the Belarusian character that distinguishes the Belarusian alphabet from other alphabets of the East Slavic group, by Natan Kryszk and Monika Orpik. The inaguaration of the Square took place on 26th of September 2021. The opening event included a debate with NGOs on the ways of supproting people migrating from Belarus to Poland and a concert of two music bands from Minsk.
