Little Experiment 2014 Art Competition.

The aim of the Little Experiment 2014 is to encourage and promote a modern experimental approach to contemporary art in all media. The competition forms part of a program celebrating 50th Anniversary of Polish Social and Cultural Association – POSK. It underscores a commitment of POSK supporting contemporary arts. It is also an outreach of Polish community towards diverse communities of Great Britain. The Little Experiment 2014 is held under joint auspices of Association of Polish Artists in UK and POSK Gallery. The competition enjoys the support of Polish Cultural Institute and Haringay Arts. Most importantly, we gratefully acknowledge the financial sponsorship of Murdzenski Fund.
