This edition of  FOLK INSPIRATIONS  means 7 days and various events in Lodz and Lodz region. Every year, over 400 young artists and volunteers from several countries around the world and audience participate in the festival.

This year’s edition will be unique – in July we will celebrate the 10th anniversary of our folk event. We invite you to take part in it  between 6th  and 12th  July 2020.

The festival is an international celebration of folk and folklore, and its heart has been constantly beating in Lodz and the Lodz region. The festival gives young artists space for intercultural dialogue, allows them to reach for tradition and create a contemporary and  unique form of artistic message. Every year, its programme consists of concerts, street art activities, theatre performances, photography and folk design exhibitions, various educational and cultural activities, and the prestigious “Golden Boat” competition in the following categories – choreography, vocal, music, theatre, photography, film and design.

We hope that our 10th birthday will be a reason for us all to celebrate! Together with our guests – young artists from Poland and the world, as well as the inhabitants of Lodz and the Lodz region, during the festival week we will meet in places we already know, such as Manufaktura and Piotrkowska Street, as well as new ones. We can reveal that this year our event will also take place in Pabianice and Zgierz, but we won’t tell you all our secrets! Let’s stay in touch.
