Welcome to the Berlin-Warsaw @rtpress platform, a virtual cultural-social review which is a fruit of cooperation between artistic milieus from Warsaw and Berlin. Since ‘creative energy’ is a tag line often referred to both cities, we have chosen creativity as a leitmotif of our first texts. Joanna Turek writes about financing independent cultural initiatives in Warsaw; Joanna Kiliszek, Agnieszka Pindera and Thibaut de Ruyter take a closer look at the Warsaw and Berlin curatorial scene while Philipp Fritz describes from the point of view of a Berliner the cultural life buzzing in and around the most popular Warsaw square.
