Traditionally, the SYNTHETIS events will be held at the Radziejowice Palace – a beautiful complex situated 50 km from Warsaw. The venue, surrounded by a picturesque landscape and originally
dating back to the 17th century, thanks to its unique atmosphere has become a work facility for artists, writers, musicians and painters. Its intimate character provides excellent conditions to create both highly cooperative environment and creativity-enhancing atmosphere.
SYNTHETIS, created and directed by Zygmunt Krauze, is a successful reactivation of the le-
gendary composition courses initiated in 1980 by the Polish Society for Contemporary Music. The key objective of the Course is to allow each and every participant not only to develop his or her
artistic skills, but also to work in an environment where exchange of experience is essential.
Deadline for application is May 31.
