WHAT WE DO?
Solidarity Here and Now is a project based on a transnational value of solidarity. It is focused on sharing and supporting persons working with and for other people – who experienced forced migration, seek for asylum, shelter, help.

HOW DOES THE PROJECT LOOK LIKE?
We have started the project in 2017. Once a year we organize an international programme for new participants and graduates. It takes place in Gdańsk (Poland) at the European Solidarity Center (ECS). The ECS is a state-of-art cultural institution that honours the greatest civic success – the victorious Solidarity movement. It is a museum that commemorates the revolution of Solidarity and the fall of communism in Europe, but it is also an educational, research and academic centre, an archive, library and multimedia library.
