THE CROSS-CULTURE WARSAW FESTIVAL 2008

4TH EDITION OF THE CROSS-CULTURE WARSAW FESTIVAL (14-21 Sept. 2008)
About the Festival

The 2008 Cross-culture Warsaw Festival will be abounding in great concerts and celebrity artists, captivating theatre shows, interesting films and interactive workshops, as well as discussion panels.

The motto of the Festival comes from a book by Ryszard Kapu¶ciński, Travels with Herodotus: “Other worlds and other cultures are mirrors, in which we and our culture see our reflection”. We chose it because it reflects in a concise and pithy manner the ideas that constitute the foundation of our festival.

The idea of an event that will stress the multicultural character of Warsaw in its historical and contemporary aspect has been initiated by the City Council. Stołeczna Estrada from the very beginning took care of the conceptual and organizational side of the Festival, as it is with all the Warsaw events.

Warsaw is a city which, as none other in Poland, hosts a very large group of newcomers – both from Poland and from all over the world. It is a city open to different cultures, a city interesting for others and interested in others. The mission of the Festival is to evoke the need for learning, understanding and finding, i.e. for seeing one’s own reflection in other cultures and communities. Our big aim is to make the Festival one of the biggest annual events of the city, and eventually – its trademark in the world.
