City game "150 mysteries of Nikiszowiec" 2015

"Fairytale Silesia," "Silesian Games," and "Historical Nikiszowiec" were the themes for the implemented events. Each city game was based on the same scheme, but with an individual scenario. Groups of 10 people and their supervisors were given a map of Nikiszowiec with the points they had to visit. At each point an interesting fact about the district and a mysterious envelope with riddles to solve awaited them.

The game featured local folk artists Ewelina Soska, Grzegorz Chudy and Marek Szołtysek, among others, who gave short talks promoting the exploration of the region's heritage and local cultural traditions. The last point of the game was always the Zimbardo Center or catechism room, where the children watched a segment of the program " Mówie i Godom", "Made in Silesia" and "Rączka cooks" with traditional Silesian food, which they could taste at the last point of the game - at the stand of the Rybka Social Cooperative, where refreshments were prepared for the children. 

A project implemented by the Foundation in 2015 in Nikiszowiec, which included an urban game in one of the most beautiful and surprising neighborhoods of Katowice. The main goal of the project was to promote the exploration of the region's heritage and local cultural traditions.The initiative was funded by a small grant from the Katowice City Hall.
