THE ART NAIF FESTIWAL ORGANIZERS
The Eko-Art Silesia Foundation was founded in 2008 by Johann Bros and Monika Paca-Bros, who are also the owners of the Wilson Shaft Gallery. The main goal of the Foundation is to revitalize the society through art and change the living conditions in the post-industrial part of Katowice.
The Wilson Shaft Gallery is the biggest private art gallery in Poland with an exhibition area of 2500 m2. The Gallery is located in the former mine shaft, which was constructed in 1826. The building is listed on the Industrial Monuments Route created by the Silesian Voivodeship. More information about the venue can be found on the website:www.szybwilson.org.
Katowice Miasto Ogrodów – Instytucja Kultury im. Krystyny Bochenek is a local institution, which aims to encourage citizens to be involved in cultural and educational activities as well as to organize and promote all artistic events happening in Katowice. Due to the fact that since December 2015 Katowice has been listed on the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (field: music), the main task for this institution is to supervise UNESCO’s guidelines in this area. More information about the Katowice Miasto Ogrodów can be found on the website:www.miasto-ogrodow.eu.

The Art Naif Festiwal is a unique international exhibition of the naïve art in Poland, which could not be organized without the involvement of the public and cultural institutions as well as entrepreneurs. Each year, the Art Naif Festiwal is organized with the support of Katowice City. Past editions of the Art Naif Festiwal were also financed by the Marshal’s Office Silesian Voivodeship or from other funds from private companies and sponsors. Thanks to professional cooperation among many institutions, we create a unique cultural event in Katowice which not only brings the art closer to the society but also transforms the post-industrial image of the city as well as the Silesian Voivodeship.
