"New Sound - New Dimension - New Man"
WHAT WE DO:
Slot is a grass-roots movement unifying people for whom Christianity is the inspiration for involvement in culture, education and society. This group of people formed an association in 2003 in order to help them fulfill these goals.
Since 1993 Slot has been organizing the SLOT ART FESTIVAL, which is a constantly growing meeting place for over 6,000 seeking young people from Poland and 30 other countries. The festival brings together 1000 volunteers as well as a few hundred artists, speakers and instructors. The festival has 140 workshops and seminars, 7 stages (music and performance), lots of little cafes and clubs, a social initiatives fair, sporting events, cinema, theatre, art galleries and it's own festival TV station.
For 5 days and nights over 5,000 people gather to learn, share, listen, study, create, build, play, converse, perform, meet new people, help, become more radical. All of this takes place in a peaceful, open and expectant atmosphere.
To motivate young people to grow and develop in every area of their lives, to have a creative disposition towards life and to be involved in the world around them.
To network, share resources, and cooperate with like-minded people and organizations.
To find in the life and teachings of Jesus answers for the questions of the post-modern person and world he is part of.

SLOT is more of a movement than an organization. It for sure isn't stuck in a certain place or time and it's never exactly the same as it was before. It's hard to find the border of ideals when they are carried in the heart of people.
SLOT is a platform of unity for those who find their inspiration for involvement in culture, education and society in Christianity.
