Theatre + | Multilingual workshops for children with migration experience

Take a trip with us to the nooks and crannies of history and discover the Museum and the threads of its exhibition during the exceptional theater workshops. The workshops will be a perfect opportunity to take part in creating the museum’s offer and to suit it for the needs of people who speak other languages than Polish.
The first meeting will take place on October 10th at 11 am and will last until 12.30 pm in the Multimedia Room. Further dates will be set with all of the participants. The workshops are planned to consist of 8 meetings which will take place between October and December 2020.

emiGRACJE | Integrative physical activities for women with migration experience
We’re inviting you to take part in a series of integrative physical activities for both non-Polish speaking women living in the Tricity area and Polish women who’d like to meet new people in the new, post-pandemic reality. Through dance, movement, breathing, and meditation we will be looking for new ways of meeting, integrating and creating a female community.
The time of pandemic and forced isolation were all new experiences for all of us and the need of sustaining relationships was one of the most basic and core ones. At the Emigration Museum in Gdynia we are creating a new space for meeting and exchanging experiences which will allow the participants to create new relationships and to establish contacts with new people.
The first meeting will take place on October 13th at 6pm and will last until 8.30 pm in the Multimedia Room. Further dates will be set with all of the participants. The workshops will take place until the end of November 2020 and all meetings will be for free.
To sign up for all meetings please fill out the form at: https://forms.gle/GhRvAHhrRMV7cifFA.
More information: email@example.com. The workshops will be conducted in Polish and/or English, depending on the participants’ needs.
Host: Agata Gregorkiewicz – a Tricity-based dancer, dance and improvisation teacher. An author of “Rusz Duszę” initiative within which she realizes artistic, social and cultural projects.
Gdynia Language Swap. Language swap meeting
Do you want to practice foreign languages and meet new people while chatting over coffee? Join our language swap meeting. We kindly invite foreign Tri-City citizens, as well as people who, in return for practicing conversations in foreign languages, could help others to learn Polish. See details.
We are creating a space in the Emigration Museum in Gdynia, which will serve as a place for meetings, sharing experiences and language learning, completely free of charge. What would you say to being a teacher and a student at the same time?

We will assign you a language partner for mutual conversation, based on your individual needs and language attitude.
If you feel like inviting your friends, or know somebody who has just arrived in Tri-City – bring them along! The space we are making available will allow you to hang out with an international group of people. We provide a lovely atmosphere, snacks, coffee or tea.
