In the past few years we have delivered a number of successful projects:

 

2009: Polish Cultural Festival 

A week long programme of events (20-26th April 2009) showcasing theatre, heritage, visual arts, film and music. The festival was a great success and attracted an audience of almost 7 000 who participated in 20 different events run in venues all over the Edinburgh .

 

2010:The Experiance of Polish Scottish Integration- A research and community consultation project funded by “Investing in Ideas”  Big Lottery Fund. The project created a platform to discuss the process of

integration in Scotland, and allowed us to learn more about the needs and barriers to integration for the Polish migrant community in Scotland. It also generated ideas and recommendations to design better informed services and projects responsive to the needs of the community. (The Polish-Scottish Heritage Trail is one of the projects based on the outcomes of this research).

 

2010: Bajka-Fairytale Project
 Art and theatre workshops for Polish and Scottish children. The script for the play used Polish and Scottish fairy tales as well as songs and rhymes. Polish and English speaking children acted in the play.  (20 children acting, 150 people saw the shows)
