During the Narracje Festival, Gdańsk’s cityscape turns into a theatre of architecture and light. The Narracje artists work in visual art using light technology, for example video projections on well-known or lesser-known Gdańsk buildings and street recesses, video-installations in shop windows, galleries and cultural institutions and pieces with public participation.
