Zofia Rospond was born 1934 in Wieliczka, Poland. Zofia migrated to Melbourne Australia in 1959, but Zofia’s heart always remained in Poland. Zofia endured a difficult life and, to keep positive, engrossed herself in links to her homeland. When Zofia was introduced to PolArt, she found her vehicle to encourage Polish art in Australia. Zofia believed that through PolArt, future generations could enjoy Poland’s magnificent artistic and cultural heritage in her adopted country. When Zofia was terminally ill, she decided to bequeath her estate and establish the Rospond Family Foundation, a generous legacy, for the purpose of funding PolArt festivals for generations to come. The Foundation is a lasting reminder of her love and passion for the arts and Polish community.
