Meet Sylwia Chutnik at 6th ŚFN!

Let us continue with presenting the guests to appear at the 6th Silesian Science Festival KATOWICE. Today, we present to you one of the most colourful personalities in Polish culture — a doctor of humanities, writer, publicist, social activist, reading promoter, as well as... a singer of a punk band — Sylwia Chutnik. 

Our guest is a cultural studies expert by education and a graduate of the Gender Studies degree programme at the University of Warsaw. She is a member of the Polish Writers' Union and the Literary Union, as well as a curator of multiple literary initiatives and festivals (among others, the International Literature Festival Apostrophe and Literary Café at the OFF Festival). She taught at the Institute of Polish Culture of the University of Warsaw and the Maszyna do Pisania [Typewriter] writing school. Her columns can be read in Polityka, Pani, Wysokie Obcasy, Gazeta Stołeczna and many websites. She co-hosted such literary programmes as Cappuccino z książką, Zapomniani – odzyskani in TVP Kultura, and Barłóg literacki.
