According to the definition social workers are people who act selflessly for the good of a particular community. If we stick to this definition, there are more and more social activists in Warsaw. Is this good, because we learn responsibility for the city? Or is it bad, because we’re creating unnecessary chaos?_ The meeting will consider whose city it really is – all of its residents or just those who get involved in its life? Or maybe just the authorities who get elected? What does Warsaw owe its social activists? A lecture on the social traditions of the capital will be given by Jan Mencwel, co-author of a project documenting the activities of Warsaw’s social activists, chairman of the board of the City Is Ours Association. He recently published a book titled Betonosis. How Polish cities are destroyed.
The event will be broadcast on the Museum of Warsaw facebook profile.
