Lesson plans

The festivals and events we organise are more than just unique shows, beautiful concerts and inspiring meetings. There is also education, which is one of the most important pillars of our business. KBF’s biggest projects, such as the Misteria Paschalia early music festival, the Kraków Film Music Festival, the Sacrum Profanum contemporary music festival, the Wianki Music Festival and the All Around Nativity Scenes project, are accompanied by lesson plans for children and young people. These handouts have been produced since 2020 on special order from KBF.

The handouts are designed for young audiences at different levels of education. Teachers from Cracovian schools participate in their creation to ensure that the contents are interesting and up-to-date while keeping in line with the core curriculum. To date, we have prepared plans for nearly twenty creative activities with pupils.

So far, we have worked with the following experts on preparing the handouts:

  • Rafał Bednarz – teacher with many years of experience ranging from primary through secondary school to academic teaching, and an active city guide;
