Color – Rhythm – Image. Painting with the breath (PL)

01.07.2023 - 10:00 / Festival Tent, ul. Józefa 36

Discover something invisible and so obvious, something that connects us all and gives us the strength to live. Experience the energy of your soul during breath painting workshops.

Thanks to the combination of breathing exercises, movement and various painting techniques, you will have the opportunity to listen to your breath, which will lead you to make a painting.

Combining our individual paintings we will observe the magic of collective breath – a mast fluttering in the wind.

Workshops for Senior Citizens

Workshops for Senior Citizens are a series of events by our volunteers – the Machers – to teach Kraków’s senior citizens about Jewish culture, but also to provide young people with an opportunity to learn about the history of Kraków and Kazimierz first hand – from those who witnessed it. They started off in Cheder, the festival club, and became an integral part of JCF.
