Solidarity of Arts Festival

The annual Solidarity of Arts festival welcomes you to a very special place on Europe’s map. Gdańsk has the notion of freedom coded into its DNA: in the last century alone our hometown lifted the entire continent to rise against oppression on two separate occasions.
Today it has a gift of attracting first-class artists who respect and continue to search for freedom in everything they do.
