The Six Senses Project

The Six Senses project has been set up to assist and promote Cracow's several dozen cultural organizations. The Six Senses logo alludes to the city's nine flagship festivals, marked in boldface below. The program is going to be complemented by "Premium," which encompasses 18 cultural initiatives, and by "Events," which embraces six large-scale events.

The Six Senses program is diversified and caters for all age groups. Six Senses aims to bring the latest in the arts and culture from around Europe and the world to Cracow. Six Senses adopts a modern approach to planning and is based on the latest domestic and foreign promotional strategies.

The Misteria Paschalia and Sacrum Profanum festivals are two of Europe's major music events. The former is dedicated to early music, while the latter highlights 20th-century classical music performed in unconventional venues, including post-industrial space. The Polish Music Festival showcases the work of Polish composers. The Cracow Screen Festival presents rock and alternative music performed by front-rank artists from Poland and abroad. Old Cracow will be transformed into a vast musical video screen courtesy of modern visual effects.

Art Boom is devoted to modern art, design and architecture. Cracow's public places become the venues of great exposition of art, including installation, new media, murals, painting, sculpture, and niche projects. There will also be debates where young, up-and-coming artists can take on the experts. The "Art Blocks" project, which aims to establish Europe's largest contemporary art gallery, is going to be a feature of the festival. The Photography Month in Cracow festival will be displaying dozens of individual and collective exhibitions. Some of the accompanying events offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to submit your own work to the world's foremost authorities for an opinion.

The Off Camera international festival is a major event in home-grown and foreign independent cinema with 120 films and 350 screenings. National sections and retrospectives are standard features of the festival, which is also associated with the 100,000-euro Cracow Film Award.

The Dedications festival has a highly original format that sets it apart from other theater festivals in Poland and elsewhere. Each year's festival is dedicated to a great artist or an important trend. The Boska Komedia (Divine Comedy) festival presents a dozen or so performances that explore human fate within the context of fundamental existential questions from Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe.
