What is #onekrk ?
One Kraków is a new initiative bringing together foreigners and locals in Krakow who work to improve life for all in the city. You can read more about it here.
Inspired by the Open Kraków (Otwarty Kraków) programme, a number of the most active organisations representing foreigners and serving locals in Kraków are coming together to launch this one-of-a-kind event for all to enjoy.
Join us for a dynamic and entertaining day featuring workshops, presentations, interactive activities, thoughtful discussion, and (of course) plenty of networking and open-mic components.
New and existing initiatives led by and for both the local and international communities will be showcased, along with the diversity and cultural richness that we all love and appreciate in Kraków. See what’s happening in the community, and maybe even meet someone new. There’s always more to discover in Kraków, so come check us out. Let’s see if Kraków really is a small world, after all.
Unfortunately, more than 4 months into the city’s Open Kraków (Otwarty Kraków) programme there has been no consultation with the foreigners community here in Kraków.
We will be offering opportunities for audience participation and a chance to share – on video – your comments, support and feedback regarding the wider Open Kraków programme. The comments will be fed back to the Open Kraków (Otwarty Kraków) programme implementation team.
