From Wednesday to Friday, the the 6th edition of Wrocław’s Intercultural Education fair will take place inside the White Stork Synagogue.
The three-day event includes live-streamed lectures and discussion panels, as well as workshops, seminars, film screenings and meetings related to intercultural issues.
As the organisers explain, the main topic of this year’s edition of the fair will be change and adaptation.
Change is a natural feature of the world around us, and adaptation to the new reality is its inseparable element. It seems that the pandemic crisis caused the pace of change to accelerate even more – also in the area of intercultural education. The pandemic situation forced educators to react quickly – which, on the one hand, resulted in interesting solutions, and on the other hand, these reactions were not always accompanied by a deeper understanding of the problems. Therefore, it is important to be able to stop and think about what happened and consider possible scenarios for the future.
We would like the fair to become a place – a stop, where we will reflect on what has happened to us in recent months and what may happen in the near future. We want to treat the crisis creatively: as a breakthrough that may become a source of new knowledge, experience and change for the better. We hope that we will learn the methods proven during the crisis in order to be able to face the future better and more efficiently. We will consider the change in a broad context: adaptation, adaptability of concepts, methods and attitudes to the present reality.
