CounterPulse is building a movement of risk-taking art that shatters assumptions and builds community. We provide space and resources for emerging artists and cultural innovators, serving as an incubator for the creation of socially relevant, community-based art and culture. CounterPulse acts as a catalyst for art and action; creating a forum for the open exchange of art and ideas, catalyzing transformation in our communities and our society. We work towards a world that celebrates diversity of race, class, cultural heritage, artistic expression, ability, gender identity, and sexual orientation. We strive to create an environment that is physically and economically accessible to everyone.
Since 2004, Art Stations Foundation (ASF) has been providing extensive support to the development of contemporary choreography (with special focus on Polish artists) through its performative programme based in Poznań, recognized internationally under the name Old Brewery New Dance. It provided the Polish and international dance community with a unique meeting point – a platform for research, creation and choreographic (self)reflection bringing forward the art of choreography in dialogue with other disciplines, examining its history, theory and future, revisiting and interrogating its own artistic, but also political and social, content and contexts. – turning Old Brewery center and ASF into a leading organization on the Central Eastern European dance map.
