On the 27th of January 2016 at noon in Polskie Wydawnictwo Muzeczne in Warsaw the opening of MEACULTURA foundation’s “Save the Music” social campaign took place, along with a press conference.

The purpose of the “Save the Music” campaign is to support a good music in cooperation with fashion and visual arts. The foundation aims at presenting eminent musicians and promote valuable music, regardless of its genre. In our understanding, a valuable music is the one that is characterised by professionalism, brings something new and unique to its genre, stood the test of time and attracts new generations of audience. The actions are being taken in many fields: creating works of arts and cloth collections, publishing articles, organising cultural events and publishing books and albums. The campaign consists of series of events, like vernissages, concerts or fashion shows. By buying unique clothes, the participants will be able to support the actions of MEACULTURA foundation. Marlena Wieczorek, the initiator of the campaign, underlines the fact, that the project gathers specialists for whom music is the sense of life and who hope to draw others to their passion.

“Save the Music” is a project that not only promotes music culture, but also aims at influencing the way of thinking about it by educating the adolescents and showing them good examples. Colourful clothes with eye-catching overprints can interest young people much more than traditional methods. The MEAKULTURA foundation wants to get to the adults as well: to enthusiasts of music, fashion, visual arts, nonconformists and trendsetters. Dr. Piotr Jakubowski of UKSW, the tutor of the “Culture on” student club who cooperated with the foundation underlined the fact that music is often used as a conductor of personality, the one of a generation likewise, that makes the music of our youth follows us during all the stages of life. Ergo, the campaign is addressed to those, who want to manifest their personality and love to music by their outfit, and to people who can be attracted to music adventure by colourful appearances of artists.

One of the participants of the conference was Kinga Król, the owner of Confasion brand and the author of the “Save the Music” collection, who put Maks Skorwider’s graphics onto the clothes. The aim of the campaign is to make those who wear Palestrina T-shirt and those in Che Guevara T-shirt equally proud. According to the designer, our outfit tells a lot about us, because it is the expression of our personality, and an intriguing outfit always attracts the surrounding’s attention and provokes asking questions.

Naturally, the author of the graphics that had been put onto the clothes, Maks Skorwider, was also present. Especially for this campaign he has also created posters about polish music during the communism. Each of them was provided with a short profile and an outline of songs of famous musicians, and cultural events, for example Jarocin festival.
