Learn, create, explore, and discover new things!


The Academy of the Finest of Arts (AFA) is a place of learning, cultural exchanges, and meetings with esteemed public figures such as bestselling authors, social activists, religious leaders, politicians and scientists. It is also a place where different non-governmental organisations can showcase their work and tell the festival audience about their mission and the causes they undertake. Festivalgoers can explore vibrant stalls, discover new initiatives and learn new skills - from flower-crown-making masterclasses and yoga sessions to hacking and welding workshops. It truly is a place to be! 


The patron of the Academy of Finest of Arts at the 28th Pol'and'Rock Festival is mBank. The AFA meetings are hosted by the journalists.

Workshops and Activities

Learning new skills at the festival? Why not?
