The Art Factory in Łódź is a cultural institution situated on the premises of the 19th-century factory in the Priest’s Mill (Księży Młyn). It was created jointly by Łódź Art Center, Chorea Theatre Association and The City of Łódź Office in January 2007. The activities of the Art Factory are mostly focused on theatre, modern art and art education. The Factory regularly organizes educational projects which are now a permanent part of the cultural events calendar in Łódź. It prepares a series of lectures and meetings with artists and leading experts of culture and art, as well as seminars and workshops. It also carries out music projects and concerts. Another vital element of the activities of the Art Factory is joining in the organization of three large international artistic projects – two organized by Łódź Art Center (Fotofestiwal – Internationa Festival of Photography and Łódź Design Festival) and one organized by Chorea (RETRO/PER/SPECTIVIES: Chorea – Theatre Festival). The final area where the Art Factory is operating are activities aiming at providing support for entrepreneurship in culture and development of creative industries.
