Following last year’s successful premier of the International Boat of Culture Festival in Łódź, preparations for the 2nd edition this summer are in full swing.
Preparations for the second edition of the International Boat of Culture Festival in Łódź have begun and the organizers have shared some insights with us already. As the international community in Łódź, or Poland in general, is continuously growing, festivals such as the International Boat of Culture, become an integral part of our lives, an opportunity to meet new people and the possibility to connect to people from around the globe.
One of the festival’s organizers, Samuel Mayor Santana, a Spaniard living in Łódź, has shared the progress on the preparations for the second edition which will take place between 10th and 12th of June this year.
– So far we have confirmed that the festival will take place between 10th and 12th of June. At the moment we are working on the confirmation of locations. We confirmed the Center of Dialogue of Łódź, where we will organize a conference regarding international projects in Poland, travelling, initiatives of Polish citizens abroad and local projects in Łódź-, Samuel says.
– In addition to the locations, we are looking for artists for exhibitions and concerts. We will also launch a promotion for a short film contest soon. At the moment are looking for people who want to take part in International Market, workshops and living library-, Samuel adds.
The festival also heavily depends on the support of sponsors and the organizers are seeking partnerships with Institutions, NGO’s, student organizations and companies to make this event one of the most refreshing festivals in the city of Łódź.
