We have provided a forum for a remarkable number of representatives of cultural institutions and the media, creative sectors, academic, legal, political and non-governmental circles. From Warsaw, we are reaching out towards renowned international speakers. Most of them are from the European Union, including the Visegrad Group, but there are also representatives of other European countries and of the USA.
