Everything about exhibitions – practical information
This year’s edition of GDD follows a hybrid format. You can listen to lectures online and see our exhibitions offline in several locations around Gdynia. Find out how to fully benefit from the knowledge and experience offered by GDD.
The GDD program includes 14 exhibitions that address the festival’s motto: Solidarity. All of them present different takes at topical, socially important issues. They comment on the present situation, pose questions and spark a debate. Find out more about individual exhibitions and their curators.
How can I see the exhibitions?
You have a few options to choose from. You can visit exhibitions independently – alone or with friends, but always adhering to safety precautions. Look at the locations map and set your own route. Most exhibitions are displayed in windows, so they may be viewed from the outside. This is how we want to avoid crowds. Remember to maintain a safe distance, but we encourage to engage in safe interaction with other participants. After all, this is something we have been dreaming about for so long. Take the opportunity to meet someone new!
Two of the exhibitions, New Generation and The Charm of Knowledge, enable you to come inside. The number of people who can remain in the room at one time is limited. Follow the instructions of the exhibition supervisor at the venue. Solidarity in the Forest is a land-art installation in the open air. It also enables direct contact with the exhibition.
If you want to find out more about the exhibitions, take part in guided walks. The routes are designated along works divided into six subject blocks. The routes were designed by curators Izabela Bołoz and Julia Rajs. The guided walks are subject to registration – just click “Enter me on the list”. There is limited capacity. You will find all walks in our program – just choose the scope, date and language (most are in Polish, but there are also two in English). During guided walks, you have to maintain a safe distance from other participants and cover your mouth and nose. If you want to follow the designated routes on your own, you can also do so – find the walk you like in the program, check the route on Google Maps and download our mini-guide in PDF format (the materials will be available online on 3 July).
The exhibitions are open to visitors between 3 and 11 July, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

What if I can’t make it to Gdynia?
No worries. We understand that travelling may currently be problematic. This is why we have prepared an online guide with descriptions of all exhibitions as well as the presented objects and products. You will have access to all information in one place, and you won’t miss a thing – even if you’re far away.
Let’s be together. In solidarity.
