FestivALT is an independent arts collective that produces an annual program of critically minded art and activism in Kraków, Poland. Combining theatre, visual art, activist intervention, and community conversation, FestivALT brings wit, insight, and a bit of chutzpah to the complexities of Jewish Poland today. 

FestivALT creates an inclusive platform for conversation, debate, education, and reflection around critical and complicated issues of contemporary Jewish culture in Poland. We invite emerging and established artists from Poland and around the world to share original and exciting work with Kraków audiences. 

Founded in 2016 by Magda Koralewska Rubenfeld, Michael Rubenfeld, Jason Francisco, and Maia Ipp, FestivALT’s main program is timed to coincide with the popular Jewish Culture Festival, offering an alternative program of critically-inspired art and activism.
