Gdańsk Neighbour Days provide a perfect opportunity to meet up and get to know your neighbours thanks to open-air activities, barbecue or street festival. The organizers, who prepare and register the event at the project’s website or Cultural Information Point of City Culture Institute get a starting package which helps out to organize the event. They can also win some prizes for submitting meetings coverage.

Each year Gdańsk Neighbour Days host dozens of events for up to 20,000 people.

This simple gesture of inviting neighbours, sharing food and drink, spending time together enables us to break the barriers of age, ethnicity and other differences that divide us. Open-air activities, barbecue, street festival – there are many ways to spend the time together. Our previous Gdańsk Neighbour Days coverage proves that such meetings are a great way to have fun!
