“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living” – wrote Miriam Beard once. According to many people, her words are timeless and constantly give pause for thought. How much does the change of surroundings affect our lives? What is more important to us – ingrown values or knowledge acquired while discovering the world? Can we feel at home anywhere we want? What does our homeland look like from the viewpoint of emigrants? We would like to answer these and other questions in the context of travelling and migrations of Poles. We hope that everyone who feels this subject is close to one’s heart will join the discussion.

Our debate will be enriched with the output of young creators from Poland, for whom travelling plays an important role in their lives. Our guests represent a generation which was raised believing that the world has no boundaries. They are young people who travel eagerly looking for thrill and inspirations for their own projects. At the same time they are ambassadors of Poland. They often return to their roots and uncover the history which they share with others. This time, through visual arts and multimedia presentations, they will show aspects of everyday life of Poles in their homeland and in exile.
