What do the Machers do?

Among many projects that we do together with our volunteers – beyond the festival – there are a few that were proposed and are being implemented by our volunteers, with a little help from the festival office and our sponsors.

The Machers for Senior Citizens

This project was created by our volunteers: they wanted to contribute for senior citizens of our quarter as well as learn from them. In this series of events The Machers and volunteers exchange their experience and develop cross-generational bounds.

It aimes to eliminate hate speech from the walls and buildings in Kazimierz and Podgórze.

Family Album

Kazimierz has very special history. Very special are the peopl, who have lived here. We would like to tell the history of Kazimierz from their perspective.
