WELCOME

FestivALT is an independent arts collective that produces an annual program of critically minded Jewish art and activism in Kraków, Poland.

Each year, we invite artists from Poland and around the world to produce visual art, theatre, site-specific performance, and activist interventions that engage with the complications of contemporary Jewish Poland. FestivALT provides an inclusive platform for under-represented voices and perspectives, and takes responsibility for addressing issues in our communities.

We are currently preparing the fourth edition of our festival, which will take place June 26–July 5, 2020. We are interested in projects that intersect with a local conversation about Jewishness in Poland—they need not be specifically about Poland, but will always have relevance and resonance in a local context. We are also drawn to projects that experiment with form and content and investigate or challenge definitions of Jewishness.
