All of this will be available to us as part of the Digital Cultures 2020: Imagined Futures festival. The main topic will be old visions of the future and the direction of the world goes after the pandemic.

2) Online Book Fair
Book premieres, over 60 meetings with Polish and foreign authors, industry webinars, and attractive discounts – this is the plan of the Online Book Fair in a nutshell. Particular interest should be directed towards the meeting with Lisa Gardner (author of several thrillers, including The Killing Hour and The Next Accident) and Nancy Springer (author of The Enola Holmes Mysteries – adapted into a Netflix movie in 2020).
When: until Sunday, October 25
3) Korean cooking workshop

When: Friday, October 23, at 12:00 and 17:00
4) Make your own macreme
Macrame is an ancient art of weaving strings, without the use of needles, knitting needles, or a crochet hook. In this free workshop, you will learn how to use this technique to create a flowerbed. For those who chill while doing needlework.
When: Saturday, October 24, from 19:00
5) Visit The Warsaw Rising Museum Online
The Warsaw Rising Museum swiftly digitizes and makes its resources available online. They also organize online walks, lectures, and workshops for children and adults. We hope that other Warsaw museums will soon follow their example.
6) What does a brain do when I sleep? – Online Brain Week
What happens to the brain when we sleep? We keep asking ourselves but rarely do we find a satisfactory answer. On Friday, dr Michał Skalski will shed some more light on that. It is always good to learn more about our most important organ.
When: Friday, October 23 from 17:00
When it comes to live events, we recommend absolute can’t-miss gems and will let you avoid large groups.
