Join our Arts Initiative for the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz!

We invite you to participate in a unique collaborative monumental painting to honor the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz. The gold illuminated painting will have its grand unveiling on 27 January 2020 at the Galicia Jewish Museum in Kraków! Join our community, meet other artists and put your name on a lasting work of art for building global understanding and passion! You can and will make a difference.

The Auschwitz Initiative is the first of its kind, a  forward-looking peacebuilding and healing initiative. We invite dedicated, passionate artists and students  interested in gold-leaf illumination, art, history, culture, and are committed to becoming cultural ambassadors. Participants will learn the fine art of gold leaf illumination, working alongside artist and professor Ellen Frank from New York. The project will start 22 October and continue through 19 December at the JCC Krakow. 


We are now accepting applications from students and artists to be a part of the initiative. If you would like to apply, please fill out the form below by 11 October 2019. You must also email your resume as a PDF file to the Executive Assistant at If you would like to, you may also include in your email a photo of you in action working or creating!
