Reading exhibition in front of Warsaw Medical University Paediatric Hospital

A unique exhibition has been put up in front of the Paediatric Hospital of the Medical University of Warsaw. ‘Zaczytane Ławki - Benches engulfed in books’ are pieces of artistic street furniture in the shape of open books, each of which refers to the world of literature. The benches give access to free audiobooks. The founder of the exhibition is Warbud Foundation.  Each Bench is equipped with a plate with a QR code to download a free audiobook. The exhibition may be visited until July 2 - free of charge, regardless of the time of day and the weather.

Our Literary Exhibition consists of eight exhibits (four with literature for children and the same number with literature for adults). These are the following benches: The World of Pleasure, The Master and Margarita, For the Love of Children, Mr. Kleks Academy and Don't bother me,  Wisława Szymborska, Dreams and Cuddly Bench. Bench designs were prepared by Rafał Olbiński, Katarzyna Bogucka, Adam Fatyga, Kinga Kulawiecka, Tomasz Sętowski, Jola Richter-Magnuszewska, Marek Sułek, Max Skorwider.

Warbud Foundation - Warto pomagać is also the founder of a library of 500 books for children and adolescents at the Children's Aid Center in Gdańsk, run by the Foundation Dajemy Dzieciom Siłę.

‘The reading exhibition is made up of small works of art which remind us how imagination grows on books. We have decided to locate the exhibition on the premises of the Medical University of Warsaw in order to support young patients and their parents with literature in their fight against illness, loneliness and the difficult life situation in which they find themselves,’ said Agnieszka Wąsowska, Member of the Board of the Warbud Foundation - Warto Pomagać.
