This year’s Kaleidoscope of Cultures event has taken on a different form due to, you guessed it, covid-19.
Now into it’s 13th year, the event is part of an initiative that seeks to engage intercultural dialogue.
The main aim of Kaleidoscope of Culture is to bring attention to the different ethnic groups and national minorities in Wrocław, as well as the regional folklore of Lower Silesia.
In past years, concerts have been held on Wyspa Słodowa and Stary Klasztor as part of the event. However, 2020’s Kaleidoscope of Cultures is composed of more intimate events and collaborative projects.
For example, for the next few Saturdays, a photography workshops will be held at Ekocentrum Wrocław. Basically anyone with a camera can take part, so beginners are welcome.
On top of that, Kaleidoscope of Cultures are putting together an interesting video project, as their website explains:
We are looking for people willing to present their talent, culture, hobbies, own or family history to the world, share interesting facts about their country of origin with Wrocław, or face its difficult, unsettled history. Maybe you have a great band, you play an unusual instrument, or would like to teach the inhabitants of Wrocław your national song or a tasty dish from a distant region of your motherland? It is up to you to create a document, comedy or an instructional and culinary video for Instagram, because together with you we will create a film script.
We are starting a new action aimed at foreigners and national minorities called A colorful mirror of Wrocław !
Wrocław is full of passion and diversity – and we want to tell you about this in your acting and directorial debuts!
We are closing the call for applications until October 15, 2020 . We want to tell a film about 5 of your mini-worlds – so apply as soon as possible.
