Getting to know NECE participants - Ewa Zadrzynska from "Poetry Unites"

Ewa Zadrzynska from "Poetry Unites"

“Maybe this is not a typical project,” says Ewa Zadrzynska and smiles. She is working for the Evens Foundation’s office in Warsaw and comes to the NECE conference with “Poetry Unites – My Favorite Poem”. In this project poetry enthusiasts present their favourite lines before the camera and get their five minutes of fame: the short presentations are shown on Polish public television, at festivals and on other occasions raising attention. Also they are organising a nationwide contest for the best essay on a favourite issue in schools.

Voices from Praga – education perspectives on the spot

Praga district is a place where school plays a special role in the young people’s life. Not only as a provider of formal education, but also as an upbringing institution. How are teachers trying to solve the outside-school problems of their pupils? Major challenges of education in Praga summarises Edyta, a teacher from nearby school.

We are offering a lot of interesting and unique assignments for the call for projects. Unfortunately, we cannot publish them all, but we are delighted to present the most outstanding projects on our blog, today: 

„Brokers | Beggars | Bon Vivants, People Making Money, People Made by Money - Introduction to Socio-drama“.

Dj Sofomor (Kamil Babacz) is performing on 18 November 2011

He is – as he calls himself – a natural-born POPtimist. Above all he loves fresh melodies and crazy sounds. His goal is to bring good songs back to the Polish dance floors, and his motto might be “less self-satisfying dj’s “artistic” needs - more good music and good fun.” He plays best songs, but not necessarily only these from the top lists. Often he likes to look for something less known, however during his sets you may hear some popular tunes, stirring refrains and tasty beats.
