Kraków’s OWHC Ambassadors and Volunteers! Without them, the upcoming 15th OWHC World Congress would be next-to-impossible. Many of its most important ambitions and objectives rely on the support of its Ambassadors and Volunteers.

For Citizens

Engaging local communities, fostering dialogue with other cultures representing world heritage capitals around the world, promoting openness towards the many, diverse voices of cultural heritage, both here in Kraków and internationally, are very important goals.

Instytut Kultury Willa Decjusza has played a vital role in inviting the inhabitants of Kraków to be a very important part of the upcoming Congress. During the successive workshops for OWHC Ambassadors, organised by Willa Decjusza, everyone who is passionate about culture (from teenagers to retirees), had an interesting opportunity to expand their knowledge of the world’s cultures and cultural heritage diversity.

They will join us for the Heritage Parade on 2 June (6 p.m.; starting in front of the Barbican) Here’s a more comprehensive update from the workshops for OWHC Ambassadors (in Polish) and our Facbook summary with photos.

Thank You & Thanks To You!

The reason why I decided to post this short update, with a link to a gallery of photos telling the story of workshops and preparations behind the scenes, is very simple: just about every major international event relies on Volunteers and Ambassadors, the very people who help everyone feel part of the intended experience. Often, they are the ones who put in a lot of wonderful enthusiasm, positive energy and hard work. Let this be one of the many ways in which, on behalf of the 15th OWHC Congress Organisers, I feel privileged to say THANK YOU!
