AS A SOUVENIR


This year, we decided not to release festival gadgets. With a sense of responsibility for our Planet, we say: stop consumerism, stop overproduction! That's why you won't be able to buy, for example, commemorative t-shirts, BUT... All visitors and lovers of Ethno Port who would like to have a tangible souvenir of the festival are invited to our T-shirt printing point – ETNICZNE EKO-DRUKI (ETHNIC ECO-PRINT).
How does it work? Simply bring your own t-shirt or a bag and get a festival print made on the spot. Of course, you will be assisted by a specialist. Amazing print designs were prepared by Daria Mielcarzewicz, who will also run the printing point.
Come to the festival with your own t-shirts. Remember – they must be cotton and ideally in bright colours! You will return home with an amazing souvenir!
That's the definition of a "limited edition" and "product personalisation", isn't it?
On top of that, it is eco-friendly, cheap and original!

PARTICIPANTS WITH DIFFERENT NEEDS


PARTICIPANTS WITH DIFFERENT NEEDS

On the first weekend in September, once again we will be listening intently to the world. Due to the pandemic, Ethno Port does not take place in its regular season and its program is somewhat more modest. However, the ideas of openness, attentiveness, respect, willingness to learn, and reaching to the roots of different regions will continue to guide us.

We also want to express our listening and attentiveness to the real world around us by thinking about the needs of the Ethno Port participants. Despite limited funds and possibilities, we will do our best to make you feel safe with us, so that together we can seek hope for better world. That is why the festival accessibility is very important to us. Accessibility in the broad sense  assuming that all of us experience "certain lack" and the necessity to think about other people's needs.

Some of the events in this year's Ethno Port program are marked with accessibility icons including:

- an induction loop during the meeting with Tomasz Markiewka (5.09), workshops on how to create notebooks for children (5.09) and screening of the documentary "Hope Dies Last" (5.09),

- Polish sign language interpretation during meetings with Adam Bodnar (4.09) and Tomasz Markiewka (5.09) and during fairy tales for children as a part of Small Ethno (4.09)

However, they are not an indicator of the festival accessibility. Most of the events are accessible for people with mobility problems. People with other disabilities may also participate. Individual needs of the participants are important here.

Take a look at the practical tips we have prepared for you. If you have any further questions about festival accessibility, feel free to contact our Accessibility Coordinator Ania: a.pawlowska@ckzamek.pl
