Catalyst of Multicultural Initiatives KIWi is a project operated by Other Space Foundation, initiated in 2010. Character of the project is the same in each edition but its elements are adapted to the needs to the participants.

In the first part of the project participants take part in a series of workshop on how to raise funds for cultural and artistic initiatives and the management of projects. Having completed the training, each participant may apply for a financial and practical support of their initiative. They may receive specialist traning (eg. PR workshop or training in presentation to a prospective employer). The best projects receive support and are realised with an assistance of tutors and experienced coordinators of multicultural projects. Since 2012 Catalyst for Multicultural Initiatives KIWi has become increasingly popular among migrants and people from the multicultural environment. Our estimations show that almost 200 people have taken part in the workshops, and over 60 unique initiatives have been realised. A number of them have been continued by their initiators without support from KIWi.

5th - 6th of June, at 3 p.m. 
Multicultural Center in Warsaw, 54 Jagiellońska St.
