Off Festival
We welcome our youngest festival guests

OFF Festival Katowice 2019: Piaskoffnica welcomes our youngest festival guests

As always, parents with young children are more than welcome at the OFF Festival, both in front of the stages (don’t forget to protect your tots’ sensitive ears!) and at our recreation and education area, which we like to call the Piaskoffnica.

Our Piaskoffnica is run by Dorota Nowicka of Kokka Studio and the photographer Anna Gołębiewska. Both hail from Silesia, are passionate about design and photography, are natural-born educators, and are experienced in working with children and young adults in a workshop setting. Under Dorota and Anna’s supervision, your kids won’t just have fun at the Piaskoffnica — they’ll learn something, too.
