Krakow brings us together - we invite you to the New Cracovians Festival!
 
From November 26 to December 3, the celebration of multiculturalism takes place at the Villa Decius in Krakow - the New Cracovians Festival. It is an initiative that brings together people of different nationalities, cultures and religions. Getting to know one another takes place in the spirit of tolerance and cooperation, beyond the concept of boundaries and despite social distance. Krakow is an ideal place for such activities. It is here that tourists come from abroad to learn about the unique history of the city and students from around the world - to study at Krakow's universities, and many foreigners choose Krakow as a permanent place to live and work.
The restrictions brought on by the pandemic make it virtually impossible to meet other people. And today - paradoxically - the idea of a coming together takes on a new meaning and becomes a pressing need. Aware of the difficulties, we want to respond to these needs, at least partially. The Multicultural Festival - New Cracovians will take place in hybrid form: on-line workshops, discussions, lectures, but also other activities. The aim of the Festival is to strengthen the positive image of foreigners who live in Krakow, to integrate foreigners with Polish-speaking Krakow residents and to signal to those who had to leave Poland due to the pandemic that we are waiting for their return.
"Strength in solidarity" - this is the slogan that guides the program of this year's edition of the Festival. Online workshops on painting, Ukrainian embroidery and cutouts, scenarios of Krakow tour route through the eyes of foreigners, the "Multicultural Library" campaign, the "tongue twisters" challenge and support for Krakow restaurants run by foreigners will be an opportunity to meet and talk - to get to know one another and learn about each other's cultures.
