Venues Of Note
Nowa Muzyka festival—they organize the lot. It is impossible to name all of the artists they invited to play in Katowice. It’s easier to just say they had everyone here (almost). And don’t be fooled too much with the “jazz” in Hipnoza’s Web address. Also good for late-night, delicious food.
This is a contemporary art center, with very serious exhibitions, but for me most important is their social program of workshops and discussion panels. They involve all of the city, very often the poor, unemployed, forgotten. They really work to make this city a better place. And of course they organize very unique concerts and shows as well. Plus a great bookstore!
Unusual architecture right in the middle of the town of Katowice. Exhibitions, art, culture and many shows and parties.
This is not a venue but a special series of events in various spots of the whole region. The title translates as European Capital Of Youth. This year’s most notable event was the Street Art Festival, second edition, and it literally changed the city with new murals, paintings, installations—some of them will remain here forever.
