Conrad Festival

Monday Oct 18 - Sunday Oct 24    
The largest literary festival in Central Europe, Kraków's annual Conrad Festival (named after the eminent Polish writer who wrote exclusively in English) hosts artists from around the world, in a range of disciplines - not only literature. Decidedly international, each year probes a specified theme, and each day of the festival culminates in a meeting with one Polish writer and two foreign writers. The Kraków Book Fair coincides with the festival, and the Conrad Award is also given to the author of the best prose debut published in Poland in the previous calendar year.

In 2021, the festival headline is: “The Nature of the Future.” The double meaning embedded in this headline is deliberate, as we wanted to ask questions about the nature of the future, or what the future is going to be and what is it going to bring, as well as about the nature in the future, focusing on the environmental aspect.
