IN 2022 I WILL GET OUT OF MY INFORMATION BUBBLE.
❓️ What problems do Belarusians coming to Poland encounter? How do they stand out from other minority groups? How are they perceived by Poles?
Recently, Belarusians are one of the national groups most frequently coming to Poland. Their decisions to leave are often dictated by the difficult situation in Belarus – during emigration they actively fight to improve it. At the same time, they try to assimilate in Polish cities where the local community often has strongly established opinions about the country they come from. These circumstances may cause prejudice and caution when establishing interpersonal relationships. Due to the current political conditions, Belarusians may also encounter reluctance from people from other national minorities in our country.
Mrs. Natalia Khatsko and Mr. Artur Kviatsinski will talk about the everyday experiences of Belarusian women and men in Wrocław, about the activities of the Belarusian Solidarity Union Association and how the attitude towards the Belarusian minority has changed over the years. They will share two different perspectives: Natalia has been living in Poland since 2022, while Artur has been living in Poland since 2008.
Participants of the event will be able to face myths about Belarusians and ask the speakers their own questions. Additionally, they will be able to get acquainted with Belarusian culture and learn more about initiatives organized by Belarusians in Wrocław.
