Who are we?
The Krzyzowa Foundation was established in the process of German-Polish reconciliation to support European understanding. The work of the International Youth Meeting Centre (IYMC) in Krzyzowa is the most important project carried out by the Krzyzowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe. Arousing curiosity and a desire to get to know other people and the world around us, searching for similarities and striving to understand differences, as well as teaching openness and communication skills are all integral parts of meetings between young people at the International Youth Meeting Centre in Krzyzowa.
Orchestra: We invite pupils and students of music schools from Poland, Germany and Ukraine. The orchestra will be performed with a complete symphonic ensemble. We want each participant to experience the learning process and the unique integration that comes with playing in an international orchestra and getting to know peers with the same passions from a different country. At the same time, we care about motivated students ready to work consistently on their artistic programme.
