Masterklasy is an educational project that each year centres on different topics connected with traditional culture. In 2017, we focused on traditional singing and its non-formal learning. In 209, we directed our attention to folk artists and competences they need to operate in today’s markets.


A dozen or so years of liaising with the community of traditional and folk artists taking part in The Jagiellonian Fair encourages us to raise topics related to various aspects of traditional culture.

The first edition allowed the enthusiasts of folk music to get acquainted with various singing traditions and to get in touch with distinguished teachers. The workshops were complemented by presentations and concerts as well as a debate that produced a publication on the situation of traditional singing and its teaching.

In 2019, the project focused on topics related to traditional artisans. A series of workshops addressed to folk artists aimed at equipping them with skills and competences useful for independent and effective functioning in today’s reality. A survey of professional needs of the artisans had preceded the workshops. The projected ended with a panel and a debate on the functioning of the community of the folk artists and the directions of its development.
