What we’re about
Polish Global Village promotes local Polish events and activities in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia (the DMV area). This group is for the Polish community and all friends of Poland who wish to attend local or online events focused on Polish art, culture, history, traditions as well as Polish politics, economy, defense and international relations. Many events advertised in this group feature Polish food. When you attend events advertised in this group, you will meet many local Poles and hear a lot of Polish. Some of the events are held in Polish without interpretation into English. Other events are held in English even though only a few people in the room do not speak Polish. Still other events advertised here are attended mostly by non-Polish speakers who are interested in certain aspects of Polish history or contemporary affairs. Very few of the events that this group promotes are actually organized by this Meetup group, but the "community organizer" and several "event organizers" are deeply involved with the local Polish community. You're invited to join, relink with old Polish acquaintances, and make new Polish friends. Zapraszamy!
NOTE: Look also for our sister groups on LinkedIn, Google Groups, and Facebooks.

- Murals ProjectEmbassy of the Republic of Poland, Washington, DC
To commemorate the second anniversary of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Washington, D.C. is engaging into the Murals project screened simultaneously in 5 cities around the World: Washington, Berlin, Tallinn, Florence and Warsaw.
On February 24, 2024 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm EST, we will be streaming the project on the front face of the Embassy at 2640 16th St NW, Washington, D.C., 20009.
The story told in Murals is inspired by and visually based on 3D scans of Banksy's murals made around Kyiv. Presently, these seven works of art stand as the sole digital representations available, with only four remaining in their original state, albeit showing slight signs of damage. The contemporary technology employed in the project, leveraging Unreal Engine, tends to evoke a profound emotional reaction from its audience.
The Murals project aims to draw attention to the ongoing war in Ukraine and is a pro bono initiative pursued by a group of filmmakers from Poland, Ukraine, the United States, Spain, and Estonia.
The premiere of Murals took place at the 76th Cannes International Film Festival. Since then, the project has been presented in London, Warsaw, Berlin, Geneva, and Tallinn. It received the Audience Award at the BFI London Film Festival and a Bronze Ciclope in Berlin.
More information about the project, including visual materials, can be found on www.murals.art and on the Instagram channel at www.instagram.com/murals_ua/
