The Festival of Traditional Art is the key project of The Folk Association “Poligrodzianie”. It is the world-wide unique affair which connects tradition with modern approach to understanding the art. It presents not only regional products but also those inspired by traditional folklore, for example fashion show. During the festival week, the inhabitants of our voivodeship may take part in numerous concerts and admire various folklore ensembles from around the world. The Festival of Traditional Art is the only one traditional culture venture, which involves the audience to take part in so tightly. Among many presentation there are singing and dancing workshops, film screening and jam sessions. In one word – The Warta Campus of Poznan University of Technology changes into the festival town.
