The Polish origami convention comes back after the pandemic break. The 19th Outdoor Origami Meeting (the 19th Polish Origami Convention aka Plener Origami) will be held Friday June 9th to Sunday June 11th, 2023 (with pre-folding session on Thursday June 8th evening). The convention place is located in the center of Krakow (Old Podgorze District), but still with some outdoor activities available. We hope such arrangement will attract you to Krakow and we will host you beginning of June.
Michał Kosmulski (http://origami.kosmulski.org) is our special guest. He is an origami artist of young generation, already known for his tessellations and boxes. He writes also about origami in his blog. He extensively researched Fujimoto works what resulted in a great contribution to origami world, the Catalog of Fujimoto's Works (CFW) as well as granting to public domain five books of Shuzo Fujimoto. Hopefully both his own works and his research will be inspiration for development of origami.
Inspiration-dedication is the leading topic of our convention. So we are awaiting models showing what or who inspires your creative work. Say us to who you dedicate your work and why this person or thing are important. We welcome your comment explaining connection of your artwork with others. Remember that good explanation may be key to understanding your art (especially why it fits our leading theme).
And as usual we especially appreciate geometric models.
We plan to publish a convention book this year too. Would you be so kind to send us a diagram of one of your creations related in some way to the leading theme, to be printed in the convention book. The book will be printed in ca. 150 copies and it will be sold to convention participants (at special low price) and later (if any copies left unsold). All proceeds from sale will cover the convention organization cost. Every author will receive a free copy of the convention book. Please send your diagram till 15th of April to the editor of the convention book Halina (Haligami) Rosciszewska-Narloch haligami [at] o2.pl
If you are able to attend, please bring your models for an exhibition.
