[microGRANTS} You’ve got a message!Come!
The old neighbourhoods of Strachocin, Swojczyce and Wojnów, where people have known each other for generations are now joined by new, large residential spaces, inhabited by thousands of new residents. We are living in a place, where the post-war history of the neighbourhood clashes with its future, and at the same time we know so little about each other. Can we change it and find a way, a point of contact between the “old” and the “new?” We think that the answer is YES! That’s why we are sending an information to everyone: “You’ve got a message! Come!”
