From generation to generation - The Machers for the seniors.

If you ever had a chance to visit Cheder, you know this is a special place – open to diversity, where the differences are something that link us. The Machers, volunteers of the Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow, inspired by the atmosphere of the place, came to idea of creating a special event series addressed exclusively to seniors. Launched in late 2015, Pracownia Seniora (Workshops for Seniors) project addresses the needs of developing cross-generational dialogue, supporting local community integration and diversifying the cultural offer for seniors.


We believe that the bigger is age difference between us, the more we could learn from each other

We meet twice each month to spend a few hours together, learning new things and spending quality time together during cupping workshops, creative writing workshops, guided tours through Kazimierz and many other events. Seniors are empowered to suggest their own events, that are fully implemented by the volunteers.


All information about the events could be found on our website. You may also write to us ( or call us (+ 48 12 431 15 17) for more details.
