Children of Polish Saturday schools, affiliated to the Polish Forum of Schools in Netherlands, can participate in the competition. The participants should be between the ages of 4 to 13.
The most precious energy collects in one room that our community has in children, young people and their caregivers. Everyone want to be together, learn Polish literature, to speak Polish in the most lovely manner. We show the next generations that the Polish language, though difficult, is also a very beautiful language. You cannot convey it any better than through works of Brzechwa, Tuwim and more or less well-known Polish poets, who wrote and still write beautiful texts for children. Currently, all complain on indifference, a lack of motivation, lack of time and a lot of other things. Therefore, the fact that every year we all meet at the next Festival is so special. Everyone feel it’s worthwhile to practice with their children at home, to prepare them for their roles, make decorations, sew costumes. Once a child give a keen interest in Wierszowisko, it does get rid of it so quickly. That’s why graduates ask to remember them at the casting of the subsequent performances. We have provided the principles of our Festival to Polish Society in London, which has organized its first Wierszowisko event on the British Isles in May 2012.”
This year’s 14th edition of Wierszowisko will be held on March 30th, 2014 at 11.30 a.m. in Malden.
