KFO in networks

In order to response to the needs of Krakow’s residents in the best way and to participate in the most recent trends of culture management, Krakow Festival Office gradually endeavours to increase its active presence of the city at the international culture map. The contemporary world of culture offers numerous development opportunities by supporting initiatives aimed at strengthening local identity, building cultural capital of residents or supplying the field of innovations and creativity. That is why, in our activities we emphasise Krakow’s involvement in international exchanges, partnerships and cooperation networks. Our mission is not only active membership in the existing networks, but also creation of new opportunities and international links. We realise how important it is to share knowledge and best practises, as well as to draw from experiences of other cities relying on sustainable development and supporting creativity in all of its aspects. There are a number of such fields in Krakow, which is confirmed by our active presence in international networks with different profiles: from literature, through film and music, to festivals and creative industries.

We strengthen Krakow’s position as an important centre of international culture in all fields of its activity.
