The Arabic Days have been organized since 2005 by the Instytutu Bliskiego i Dalekiego Wschodu Uniwersytetu Jagiellońskiego (Institute of Middle and Far Eastern Studies of the Jagiellonian University), with the intention of promoting Arab culture among young students and people coming from the non-academic world and supporting the intercultural dialogue and understanding. The main theme for this 13th edition is ‘POPkultura’ (Pop culture).

FuckUp Nights Krakow // Vol IV
WHERE: Pauza In Garden, Rajska 12
WHEN: 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM

The speakers will be available after each presentation for further questions and share a beer with you!

In English. Free admission.

WHERE: Klub Alchemia, Estery 5
