Polish-Norwegian Festival of Culture Creator – on July 1 in Rzeszów!
The Festival of Culture Creators is the opening event of the „Subcarpathian Culture without Barriers” project addressed to the residents of the region, where artists from Poland and Norway will present their work. The event will take place on July 01, in Rzeszów (ul. Bożnicza, municipal car park next to BWA in Rzeszów) from 12.00 to 20.00.
This event will feature artists from Podkarpacie, as well as special guests who will come to us straight from Norway.

The main attraction of the festival will be a rock and blues concert with elements of Ethno, including a surprise – the star of the evening will be the iconic band „1984”, from Rzeszów, Poland.
