Local activities during Industriada

Industriada – the feast of the Industrial Monuments Route of the Silesian Province is a one-day festival held once a year in June, in the industrial sites located within the Silesian Province.
This is an exceptional day when “technology attracts people” and industrial spaces are filled with diverse events. On this one Saturday in June not only enthusiasts of industrial monuments have the opportunity to discover how interesting the industrial heritage of our region is.
Industriada comprises numerous concerts, spectacles, artistic performances, exhibitions, happenings, shows and different competitions and creative workshops engaging mostly children and youths and lasting from the morning until late night hours.

This year The Mine of Art Association organized dance workshops with flashmob happening and music workshops in Maciej Shaft – one of the monument inscribed on the Industrial Monuments Route of the Silesian Province.
