The next lecture in the Art Transfer Foundation’s series, Artistic Muses, will feature Kiki de Montparnasse. Born Alice Prin, Kiki de Montparnasse came a long way before she became Kiki de Montparnasse – from a disadvantaged girl from the countryside, deprived of parental love, to a glorified and famous model, painter, and performer, hailed as the queen of Paris, a city that in the 1920s was the center of the art world. Jean Cocteau called her the "Empress of the Gypsies."
Presenter: Ewa Szachowska – art therapist, coordinator and author of educational projects, and long-time collaborator of the Art Transfer Foundation (since 2013).

She conducts workshops, guided tours, lectures and various educational activities using the medium of art, dedicated mainly to adults, especially seniors, but also to people with disabilities and children.

She also conducts workshops and works as a guide in the Botanical Garden at the University of Warsaw.
