FestivalALT Kraków

The 8th edition of the  “alternative” Jewish arts and activism festival in Krakow that runs in parallel with the big Krakow Jewish Culture Festival.

FestivALT strives to elevate and normalize the representation of Jewish voices negotiating the intricate terrain of Jewish culture, especially within publicly-funded institutions such as festivals, museums, and cultural spaces. It confronts the unsettling phenomena of neglect, appropriation, and commodification of Jewish material heritage and memory.
