Polish Arts Festival is back this September, offering a range of cultural events for all ages. The 15th edition of PAF will take place from the 14th to the 18th of September across various locations in Limerick presenting an ambitious and artistically diverse programme, which includes concerts, exhibitions, film screenings and a bespoke PAF Kids Day - so there is something for everyone! The majority of events will be presented in both English and Polish allowing for a shared cultural experience to thrive.
This year PAF is delighted to welcome major contemporary Polish folk stars - the Warsaw Village Band, who use traditional techniques of playing and singing in inventive performances, creating a surprisingly avant-garde and modern sound. The band's instrumentation includes traditional instruments - violins, cymbals, barabans - sounding exceptionally modern and the musicians are not afraid to combine them with, for example, DJs and electronica. Warsaw Village Band will play in Belltable on Thursday Sept 15th, tickets can be booked here: https://bit.ly/3MPrbJc - this one is not to be missed so book your tickets early!
The festival will also present two superb award-winning Polish movies, ‘Songs about Love’ and 'Kill It and Leave this Town’ (with Eng subs) both films having their Irish premiere during PAF in Limerick.
PAF Kids Day will take place on Saturday 17th September and it will include circus workshops with Simon Thompson, art workshops with Aga Szot, a screening of a gorgeous family film by Jan Jakub Kolski “ The Republic of Children’ (with Eng subs) ) and a story trail adventure across the Limerick streets and landmarks. A premiere of an exciting cross-cultural PAF Stories Project will also take place during PAF Kids Day - watch this space!
PAF visual arts programme is no less ambitious and includes a solo show by Kildare-based Polish artist Olga Anacka in the Hunt Museum and a presentation of a new VR project ‘Kosmogonik’ by Pawel Szarzynski (based on S. Lem’s short story “Uranium Ears’) , in the Limerick City Gallery of Art.
Announcing the programme, the festival’s Co-Artistic Director & CEO Justyna Cwojdzinka comments, “We are confident that this year’s festival will be a powerful celebration of Polish arts & culture, and Polish - Irish community and friendship, and that it will demonstrate our commitment to diversity, cross-cultural dialogue and collaborative, inclusive arts practices”.
