Ksenia Wilaszek recalls her experience from the 1st edition of the "In Between?" project
When I decided to take part in the “In Between?” project I hadn’t expected to see so many new things and experience such wonderful moments. After all, I have been living in Lubusz Land – the area which we have visited – for six years by now. But to understand the region’s phenomenon properly, one needs to explore its diverse history.
We have the pleasure to announce that the "In Between?" Conference will take place in Warsaw, Poland between 2 and 3 December 2016.
The program includes: presentations of the study visits, a speed geeking session, screening of the “The Border” documentary, lecture and discussion panels. All events are held in English.
Admission is free. The conference will take place at the National Audiovisual Institute (ul. Wałbrzyska 3/5, Warsaw).
The conference (seminar) funded by the German Federal Government Commisioner for Culture and the Media.
We look forward to welcoming you here!
Between 16 and 23 of September, 2016 seven exceptional young people from five European countries visited the multicultural borderland region of Baranya county, Hungary. They had an opportunity to meet its inhabitants, and conduct and document interviews with them. Although Pécs was the main venue of the project activities, participants also stopped by few other places: Erdősmecske, Pécsvárad, Sellye, Drávasztára and Piskó.
”Thoughts on how my grandfather visited Ukraine 28 years before I did.” Joanna Urbańska, one of the In Between? participants, compares her experiences from Bukovina with those of her grandfather.
A team of six young professionals explored connections between the social, political, economic and ethnic frameworks of the Ukrainian-Polish-Slovak-Hungarian borderland, attempting to understand fully the sense of commonality between these various Transcarpathian identities.
