Culture in Poznań


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.

Look at the sky!

Nie to niebo (Not This Sky) presents an enthralling and enigmatic narrative that delves into the mysteries of the things above and around us. This latest undertaking from the Castle Cultural Centre is a far cry from conventional run-of-the-mill exhibitions as it interweaves various threads and perspectives across interdisciplinary fields and accompanying events.

A festival that lives up to the times

In a nutshell, Next Fest Showcase & Conference has managed to feature over a hundred and ten bands and performers along with multiple panels and conferences spread across more than a dozen venues over three days. Following the resounding success of the Spring Break festival, its organisers are back with a brand-new event, acknowledging that tough times call for innovative approaches.

The Spring Jazz Attack

Believe it or not, the Jazz Era festival is about to celebrate its 25th anniversary this year. As part of its spring jubilee, the festival will showcase one of Poland's premiere jazz ensembles and a play depicting the life of Krzysztof Komeda.

Design as universal wisdom

The National Museum of Poznań will hold Poland's first original exhibition of works by Kenya Hara, one of the world's most highly acclaimed Japanese designers.

The world according to Barbie

At her age of sixty-four years, is Barbie a feminist? "I think she has been one all along!", replies Aleksandra Podżorska, curator of the Barbie: The Unknown Face exhibition in an interview with Agnieszka Nawrocka.

Ewa Bem

The name of this one of Poland's greatest vocal divas speaks for itself. And it gets even better as this remarkable artist will appear in Poznań with equally excellent accompanists, sharing the stage with the Andrzej Jagodziński Quartet!

Sensitive deconstruction

Hidden in the cosy space of a castle wing, the exhibition offers quiet time in which to face oneself and reflect on the questions posed. Not only the questions coming from its creator, Magda Hueckel, but also those that arise in the viewers' minds as they are confronted with her work. Hueckel draws on her personal experience to describe female strength, the natural course of life, being oneself and staying completely unfettered.

Amadeus for Women's Day

On the first Sunday of March prior to Women's Day, the Amadeus Orchestra will serve a true musical feast.

Laboratorium Pieśni (Song Laboratory)

Most likely well remembered by the Poznań folk music audience, this band gave a wonderful, warmly applauded concert during the Ethno Port festival four years ago. This time around, Laboratorium Pieśni will visit the capital of Wielkopolska to promote its latest soon-to-be released album Hé oyáte.

The Lech Poznań Museum

After years of preparations, long awaited by fans and tourists, the Lech Poznań Museum has finally had its opening.
