Networking Breakfast for Active Krakowians

WHERE: Ambasada Krakowian, ul. Stolarska 6/9
WHEN: 8 – 11 AM

It is a well-known fact that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So why not share it with inspiring people?

The aim of the event is to bring together young activists, community leaders, and volunteers to establish a network of people who would like to cooperate between each other or simply share ideas for future projects in the city of Krakow.

In English. Free admission.

Summer with movies in Ambasada: 97% Owned

WHERE: Ambasada Krakowian, ul. Stolarska 6/9
WHEN: 6 – 9 PM

Every Tuesday this summer, Ambasada Krakowian will host a special event in which documentary movies will be displayed. These documentaries are not the kind of movies you could watch in cinema or heard about in radio, because are given directly by the directors exclusively to Ambasada!

This Tuesday, on American Independence Day, will be presented 97% Owned, a 2012 documentary which uncovers the ‘American Dream’ by explaining the inner workings of Federal Reserve System and the money creation process. 97% Owned is, then, the documentary we need to watch in order to better understand the mechanism that controls the economy, because as the political philosopher John Gray wrote: “We’re not moving to a world in which crises will never happen or will happen less and less. We are in a world in which they happen several times during a given human lifetime and I think that will continue to be the case.”

The admission is free, but if you would like to support this group of hardworking young people, you can leave a small donation or bring some homemade popcorn!

In English. Free admission.
