International Boat of Culture is a festival founded by two EVS volunteers, Catalina Trandafir from Romania and Samuel Mayor from Spain. The idea was born from the need both internationals and locals living in Łódź to interact, to socialize, to know each other and to understand the difference and similarities between us. The festival aims at bringing people together through art and culture.

The main purpose of the festival is to raise awareness regarding the international community living in Łódź and  promote intercultural dialog, diversity of cultures, international projects and opportunities.

Volunteers from different organizations in Lodz joined the team create this festival. Moreover thirty EVS volunteers from different cities across Poland came to participate and help in the organization of the festival.

This festival is open freely to everybody.
