Throughout Poland cultural and world music festivals; folk, jazz, Jewish culture are celebrated and the Polish presence at WOMEX has been growing steadily in the last years.
Local partner for WOMEX 17 in Katowice were the Polish events production company ICP Group and its subdivision "Poland Concept" responsible for overseeing international projects in Poland. ICP Group made dedicated hosts who cherish and understand the concept of WOMEX as much as its message and its community’s principles.
Our local hosts were The City of Katowice and its cultural institution Katowice City of Gardens. It is responsible for UNESCO City of Music project and overseeing culture as a driver and enabler of sustainable development of Katowice. The institution has taken part in WOMEX several times and truly understands the impact of world music on the culture in general.
