Information about the project

Multicultural” is a project directed to inhabitants of Poznan interested in exploring the city’s cultural diversity - those who come from foreign countries as well as those who grew up in Poland or live in Poznan. Knowledge about various cultures favours the development of tolerance and openness. It also helps to overcome stereotypes and prejudices.
