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!
Joanna is the main organizer of the event. She will lead culinary and handicraft workshops for you, as well as a Polish language lesson.

"I have participated in many Polish dance workshops, camps and festivals. In my opinion, Polish dances create a lot of pleasure and challenge at the same time. Therefore, it is always exciting and joyful""

So, I'm working in Tartu Toy Museum and Polish culture has been already more than 10 years in my heart. I do enjoy the sound of language, I do love the Polish pattern and Polish music.
For 8 years I have been connected with Estonia, or rather with traces of Estonians in Poland during World War II. In my spare time, I examine the fate of Estonian soldiers who stood in unequal combat in Lower Silesia and Opole in 1945.
