Culture in Poznań


The phenomenon of Versace

The Old Brewery shopping, art, and business hub has kicked off its 20th anniversary celebration with an exhibition showcasing the legacy of the legendary Gianni Versace. Entitled "Gianni Versace - Retrospective", this display takes stock of the designer's lifetime accomplishments, inviting viewers on a journey of the artistic and biographical turning points of his life.

Good friends

"Bons Amigos" is the title of a collaborative album by Dorota Miśkiewicz and Brazilian artist Toninho Horta. Before the album hits store shelves, the material will surface in concert. The artists are set to appear in Poznań's Blue Note on the last Sunday of September.

Respecting memories

"This is a happy moment, even amidst challenges that evoke stress", ​​remarks Iwona Pasińska, the Head of the Polish Dance Theatre, as it commemorates its 50th anniversary. "I am delighted to hold this celebration in our newly constructed venue, a collaborative endeavour that now affords us the privilege of working in our own space every day".

Summer-end tunes

Mrozu, Natalia Przybysz, Zalewski, Vito Bambino, Nosowska and the premiere Babie Lato project hosted by Natalia Kukulska are just a few good reasons to spend the first weekend of September in Citadel Park. For many buffs of pop and general alternative music, the Poznań edition of the two-day Summer Sounds 2023 festival may be the best party in town with which to close the holiday season.

A weekend in the dark

As the last weekend of August approaches, there is no need to lament the end of the holidays. Instead, you can indulge in exploring forts, air-raid shelters, secret tunnels, and dark passages. An excellent opportunity to do just that awaits you with the 11th edition of Poznań Fortress Days!

Dance week

Twenty-four instructors, thirty different dance styles, forty-eight ​​courses per day in a dance workshop for over a thousand participants. Such are the numbers for this year's Dancing fairPlayce. But while counting dance steps may have its merits, what it is all really about is sheer enjoyment.

Nothing new to offer - but so what!?

Unable to make it to the Jarocin festival this year? No need to worry, we have another plan for you. Without ever leaving Poznań, you will indulge in the rock hits of many Polish stars over two weekend days.

An exhibition that calms the mind

Some exhibitions make everything seem to fit together perfectly. They attain harmony by ensuring that what visitors see is relevant for the setting in which they see it. Such harmony is defined not by the design of the space, but rather by an elusive congruity. The Jerzy Nowosielski: Icon and Abstraction exhibition undoubtedly falls into this exceptional category. It is held at the Archdiocesan Museum on the 100th anniversary of the artist's birth.

The city in The Chronicle. The Chronicle in the city

Launched a century ago in 1923 at the initiative of Zygmunt Zaleski, Head of the Municipal Statistical Office, Kronika Poznania (The Poznań Chronicle) started out as a monthly. Very soon, in 1927, it turned into a quarterly, a format it has maintained to this day. The magazine boasts being one of Poland's oldest publications of its kind dedicated to chronicling the history of a city.

Edison: A Little Anniversary

Grubson, Voo Voo, Muchy, Anita Lipnicka, Ralph Kaminski, and Sorry Boys are among the numerous stars set to grace this year's Edison Festival. The event is scheduled to take place in Baranowo, near Poznań, on 7-8 July.

On Concert Waves

Spring and summer present a splendid opportunity to savour the music of your favourite performers in open-air settings. One such occasion is the comeback of the #NaFalach concerts.

Malta Festival 2023: The old mixed with the new

For many years now, Poznań's cultural scene has invariably tuned into the rhythm of the Malta Festival held in late June and early July. Audiences are indulged in a plethora of concerts, performances, and encounters with artists at various venues across the city.

The multi-lingual Ethno Port

Stelios Petrakis from Crete, Ndima from Congo, Maria Mazzotta from southern Italy, and Rusan Filiztek from south-eastern Turkey are just some of the artists featured in this year's edition of Ethno Port. Notably, the festival will also highlight the vibrant music of Poland and Ukraine.

Redefine yourself

This year, the commencement of summer coincides with the inauguration of the Animator International Animated Film Festival, which promises to bring global animation stars, budding artists making their debuts, and ardent fans of the genre to Poznań. The current edition will take place both on-site, until 25 June, and online (under the name of MyAnimatorOnline) on the following day. The overarching theme of the festival this year is "Search for Yourself".

The Pyrkon Universe

Three days in fantasy realms teeming with fantasy creatures, a multitude of thematic zones, competitions, concerts, and ample space for fun, spontaneity, and socialising: all this at the 21st Pyrkon Fantasy Festival to be held on 16-18 June.

A world made of images

Simple, practical, functional, neutral, and yet sophisticated: the designs by Kenya Hara, one of the world's most renowned Japanese designers, reflect a quintessence of the multifaceted perspective of art at large as part of daily life.

Insomnia in sounds

Insomnia, a sleep disorder commonly associated with emotional and psychological states, originates from within and affects our inner selves. It is experienced individually, although its causes may be external. Such themes of individuality, personal experience, and the impact of the self on our surroundings are at the core of the upcoming edition of the Insomnia festival.

Fancy a night... at a museum?

Museum Night is a perfect opportunity to finally make those long-postponed museum visits in just a few hours, view famous exhibitions and be able to say "been there, done that" to yourself (and others).

The documentary you'll care about

Millenium Docs Against Gravity is Poland's largest documentary film festival, with nearly 200,000 followers. The fourth visit to Poznań of this annual non-fiction event will take place this May, hosted by the Muza cinema.
