Polish
Culture
Days

in Tartu 24-27.05
Come with us to discover an amazing world not so far away!

Why and what?

  1. From the need to promote what's beautiful about Poland 
  2. Because we're proud about where we come from
  3. Goal is to spark an interest, and encourage people to visit Poland - and experience it on their own
Polish Culture Days hosted by Joanna Dobosz and University of Tartu
is a four day event with lectures, workshops and many other ways to discover polish culture.
We will engage in 10+ activity blocks, across 4 days.

Many of our activities are totally free to participate!
On Thursday we will co-host a concert, Friday is heavy on workshops (and you can get a discount in printing museum), thanks to a partnership with Tartu Toy museum we will be able to create family and kids friendly workshops on Saturday - ending it all is Sunday with Polish Lecture and an Escape room. That's a lot! If you would ever feel confused we made it easy for you to find and add any event you might find interesting into your scheldue.

Activities, workshops, lectures will be run by visiting lecturers from University of Silesia, our own Joanna Dobosz and members of Polish community in Tartu. We are passionate both about Polish and Estonia and we can't wait to bring you some of sounds and tastes of home for you to enjoy! We have a lot to tell, and we are hoping that we will find ears ready to listen, share and experience.

In case of any questions, problems or suggestions please don't hesitate to contact us!
