The Foundation Krzyzowa for Mutual Understanding in Europe, the Magyar Bibliodráma Egyesület (Hungarian Society for Bibliodrama), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Bibliodrama (The German Society for Bibliodrama) and Polskie Towarzystwo Bibliodramy (The Polish Society for Bibliodrama) invite for participation in an ecumenical, international bibliodramatic workshop in Krzyżowa from 4 to 8 August this year.

This year's 30th anniversary of the Reconciliation Mass in Krzyżowa, the  beginnings of the Foundation Krzyżowa and the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War are for us above all an opportunity to reflect together more intensively on the theme of reconciliation. It will be dealt with both in the theoretical part in the form of lectures and in the practical part, i.e. the bibliodramatic workshops.

We invite all teachers and students who are interested in this form of work with biblical texts and in the theme of reconciliation to participate. For teachers, the workshop offers the opportunity to broaden their professional qualifications.
