Spectra Edu implements the statutory goals of the Starak Family Foundation regarding the education and growth of young talented people. Thanks to the Spark Grant Program, it supports students and teachers from public secondary schools of fine arts in the implementation of their original educational and artistic projects. The program creates a space for their passions and ideas and enables its participants to look at art within a new, exciting framework. The Horizons Scholarship Program, implemented together with the Roman Czarnecki EFC Educational Foundation, supports young people from families with financial difficulties, giving them an opportunity to learn and grow in the most interesting high schools and technical schools in Poland.

Spectra Art Space matters in social communication, both at the direct level of employer - employees, as well as at a general level, in contact with a wider group of art lovers.
