The Wacław Felczak Fundation
At the end of 2016 Hungary and Poland decided to pass on the heritage of Polish – Hungarian fiendship to younger generations through setting up cultural institutions. To reach this goal, the Hungarian Ministry of Human Capacities created a foundation bearing the name of an unjustly forgotten hero of Polish – Hungarian frienship and Central-European cooperation, professor Wacław Felczak.
The Wacław Felczak Foundation aims to support reasearch and pubications on common endevours, cooperation, creative projects and shared experiences of the two nations; as well as promote common joint projects in third countries. Music, as a channel crossing linguistic boundaries, is an especially valued tool to bring about the foundation’s agenda.
