Gdansk School of Mural is a platform that was created for discussion, to improve the workshops an to integrate the environment. Its aim is to restore the original function of mural - socio-political art, reacting to current events and to develop a single style - "Gdańsk School of Mural". Workshops are lead by Rafał Roskowiński and Jacek Zdybel.
