A place where children, youth and adults can have an enjoyable time.
A space of creative integration. A place for workshops, learning, meetings, and exchange of experiences.
During the day we work as a parental coworking and meeting space and in the afternoons we are a cultural center: cozy and full of interesting events.
At Meeting Point, we believe that developing interests and passion together is a wonderful integration tool. We provide free artistic, educational, sports and family workshops. We invite anyone to participate, without exception: children, youth, adults, and the elderly. Long-term and new Kraków residents who want to meet other people with similar hobbies, grow their passions, learn something new, and have a fun time.
Meeting Point was created to meet the needs of people from Ukraine but the idea of an open home seemed close to us so regardless of where you are from or what language you speak, in the Meeting Point you can get to know and make friends with other people who share your passions.
You can find us on the ground floor of the beautiful Małopolski Ogród Sztuki (Małopolska Garden of Arts) building: entrance from ul. Szujskiego.
We drive and lead free artistic, educational and sports classes for children, youth and adults, the aim of which is intercultural integration and time well spent together.
During the day, we are a daycare for children aged 3 to 6 and a space for parental coworking. You can leave your children in our care and devote your time to work, rest, or talk with other people visiting Meeting Point. Children can, but do not have to, participate in playful activities or workshops we prepare with experienced animators. You will always meet someone who speaks either Ukrainian or Polish here. You don’t have to register; just come over.
In the afternoons, we transform into an open cultural center where something interesting is always happening! The program contains artistic workshops such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sports activities including yoga classes, cooking classes, and educational classes: chemistry, robotics, criminology. You can join a converstaion in English, and soon you will have a chance to join Polish learning as a foreign language classes.
Check the schedule (you can find it below) and choose the most interesting and inspiring ones. Remember that you have to register for these classes and pay attention to their location, as some of them take place outside of Małopolski Ogród Sztuki (in Arete studio or in Pałac Krzysztofory on the Market Square).
On the weekends, you are invited to special events! It’s the time for longer workshops, slow, creative mornings, and meetings with extraordinary guests! Visit our website or Facebooka, page to stay current and not miss any surprise events.
