Multicultural Street is a program of animation and cultural activities whose aim is to support, initiate and implement multicultural events in the space of Wroclaw. The common place of these events is the city, which we understand as a space that is diverse architecturally, socially and culturally. We want all Wrocław residents, regardless of their country of origin, to get to know each other, integrate and explore the diversity of cultural urban landscape during joint meetings.
City games, walks, concerts and other integration events of a multicultural nature.
- Wrocław as a multicultural city
We know that Wrocław has an extremely rich multicultural tradition. But do we know specific characters, events and places associated with it?
On October 5 and 13, 2018, two editions of the urban game “Wrocław as a multicultural city” were premiered. Together, we have solved a number of varied and interesting tasks, thanks to which we got to know the history of Wroclaw and its multiculturalism. We learned, among others What was the Royal Palace, what Nobel prize winners were connected with the University of Wrocław, what event accelerated the urban development of our city and many other curiosities. The next game is planned for spring of 2019. Follow our site!

- Kaleidoscope of Cultures
Festival “Kaleidoscope of Cultures” is one of the most important and the largest multicultural events in Wroclaw. Its main organizer is the Kaleidoscope of Cultures Foundation, operating since 2008 for the social and civic activation of immigrants, foreigners and national and ethnic minorities. As part of the festival, each year, concerts of bands representing national and ethnic minorities (including German, Ukrainian, Greek, Roma, Lemko, and Jewish minorities), workshops, culinary tastings and many others take place on Wyspa Słodowa.
The festival involves not only professional artists, but also amateurs fascinated by the culture of their ancestors and cultivating their traditions. Thanks to its open formula, it is a significant element of the activation and integration of minority communities both in Wrocław and throughout Lower Silesia.
As part of the festival events, for the eleventh time in June 2018 concerts took place on Słodowa Island (about 1500 spectators during the whole day), a club concert (about 200 people), workshops (about 300 participants) and a presentation of minority cuisine.
