Ў Gallery of Contemporary Art features current artistic projects by artists from Belarus and abroad, organizes lectures held by art critics, philosophers and urban theorists, and offers workshops for adults and children. “Ў gallery” is an active art-platform which unites its exhibition space with the “Ў cellar” (an experimental space for young artists), “Ў bureau” (a space offering art works by contemporary Belarusian artists), as well as a design shop, bookshop, and café. One of the most important directions of “Ў gallery” activity is educational: the organization and carrying-out of seminars, master classes, and workshops in art history, art criticism, art management, and curatorship with the participation of Belarusian and foreign professionals. The aim of these educational events is to accumulate around the gallery not only artists, but also critics and analysts, to create conditions for critic-analytical environment. Friends of the gallery, civil society groups, and, activists use the space for their educational events, too. “Ў gallery” collaborates with the professional expert community from the fields of art history, visual culture, critical urban studies, philosophy, and gender studies and supports interdisciplinary research projects. An extended educational program for children is also available.
