Such special anniversary, 10 years of Bears of Poland existence is a great time to show how far we’ve come since 2009. Being founded from a dream of our founding fathers to a thriving nationwide multicultural community proud to be who they are as bears.
This calendar is a collective work of 27 bears who pushed themselves to stand in front of the camera of the amazing Anthony P. Manieri (creator of the ARRESTED MOVEMENT project) to show the world the diverse beauty of our Polish bear family.
This experience changed us big time. For all of those 46 Bears of Poland (comb who decided to participate in ARRESTED MOVEMENT and #WEAREBOP photoshoot the experience was liberating and eye-opening.
We fell in love with ourselves, in a whole new way.
Without low self-esteem and self doubt.
We hope that this project will be remembered as our manifesto showcasing that we are as strong as ever as a family – looking to our collective future with our heads up high.
Brothers for brothers
