We are looking for partners, to bring the project around the world.

The name of partener organization will be listed as partner of project, au pair like all others, and the logos will be showed every where the project will arrive.
Any partner is free to find local sponsors for the project, and keep the contribution for the organization of local event; local sponsors will be listed and showed worldwide.

The group, whose task is to transform the creative potential of young artists into actions broadening the horizons of art, effected from a meeting of 3 students of Academy of Fine Art in Katowice and History of Art.
Ozon Art Group associates mostly with Katowice as a city. However, the group's fixed activities are not limited by geopolitical borders.
One of the major ideas of the group is to organize the OZON International Video Art Festival, which takes place at present in Katowice, Poland.
International – because the art and borders are two different antagonistic ideas, the art does not want to recognise any borders and we will not dare to stand on its way. Thus, the chance to remind the taste of FREEDOM is waiting for us.
Festival – our goal is to organize the review of achievements. It is a kind of competition where you can be rewarded, in other words: the joy of victory and warm words of consolation for runners-up. So we expect REAL EMOTIONS.
Video Art – as everything will turn around the moving images. The effects of intensified quantity of visual stimuli can take the various forms. The most popular ones during the previous edition were: MELANCHOLY, SHOCK, as well as PLEASURE.
OZONe– it is possible to draw a theory that it is a kind of symbol – essencial matter at the moment the absence od which would mean for us a a catastrophe, the end of life. We will not protest if you use those words to describe our festival.
