It’s clear how thoughtfully Gosia matched the cups to Cycling theme. Many of Gosia’s projects are highly personalised: a recent project was a series of six cups showing the story of a couple’s relationship leading up to their marriage. Gosia lives and paints in Gdansk, on the Northern coast of Poland. Her work involves painting on china and canvas and graphic design projects, but working with children at the “Centrum Reduta” day centre is also a rewarding and important part of her day. She works with teens from unfortunate or disadvantaged backgrounds, offering social and therapeutic support. These opportunities offers a chance to teenagers to express their creativity and allow it to grow.

A few years back, they founded the cultural magazine (Kwartalnik Mrowiskowy Magazyn Kulturalny) edited by teenagers linking the centre with social events in the community. In addition, Gosia directed the Kids Retro Festival Gdansk, runs craft markets in her spare time, and helped create the Social Garden, a venue for cultural events.
