The Gödöllő Applied Arts Workshop (GIM-House) was founded in 1998, gathering professional artists of national and international renown in and around Gödöllő. The aim of the Workshop is to revive the spirit and artistic heritage of the turn-of-the-century Gödöllő Art Colony of Europewide reputation, founded at the turn of the nineteenth century, introducing it to contemporary art, culture, education and international relations.
The GIM-House hosts contemporary art exhibitions, while the studios of the artists can also be visited. Occasionally workshop studies, sketches and works of the great personages of the late secession art colony of Gödöllő (Aladár Körösfői-Kriesch, Sándor Nagy, Jenő Remsey) are also put on display.
In the exhibition hall and the pictorial garden, designed on various colours (gold, blue, purple), there are thematic events of a combination of arts; outdoor film projections, fashion shows, poetry and music recitals are held for the public. In the workshop, a thorough, tradition-based arts and crafts education (tapestry weaving, various textile techniques, ceramic, drawing, painting) is provided, tailored to each pupil’s requirements in a professional artistic setting. As part of the education program, summer art camps are also regularly held. The Workshop is financed by the Gödöllő Public Foundation of New Art (Gödöllői Új Művészet Közalapítvány).
