ŁAZANKA Mobile Local Initiatives Center - a place for residents, frequenters and regulars of Lower Lazarus. Project implemented by the Association CIM HORIZONS from 2017.
Why is our Center of Local Initiatives mobile?
Because, Łazarz is a big district and now a lot is happening here. Activities implemented within the Center include many places, such as our office, Osiedlowy Klub Kultury “Krąg”, or the Incubator of Culture Piraeus, as well as squares, Rynek Łazarski, parks, gates and other places depending on the needs. ŁAZANKA is a place open to every age and social group.
Activities for the Lower Lazarus community:
One of the tasks of the CIL is to support activities for the Lower Lazarus community. That’s why we have launched a competition for grassroots initiatives – that is ideas for their own activities, a referral to the inhabitants of the district. In 2019, participants of the workshops “From the idea to the project” in the Café Vandal, run by Urszula Kisiel-Grzanka and after consultations, carry out 5 such bottom-up initiatives with the support of our MCIL:
Bottom-up initiatives with the support of our MCIL in 2019:
- “Łazarski Tribe” – recollection and recycling workshops during XXX Lazarus Days;
- “Give your neighbor a flower” – creating an intercultural mural and workshops on tolerance during Neighbor’s Day 31/05/2019 in the Łazarz Garden;
- “Second Hawaiian meetings on Lazarus on the occasion of the 30th celebration of Lazarus Day”;
- “Wulkan Doświadczeń” – an experimental workshop for children;
- “Art-Circles of human rights” – reconstruction of a tunnel-mural in the space of the Lazarus Garden;
We provide appropriate substantive and financial support, contact with local partners.
In addition to the initiatives, we also supported the organization of the ŁAZART Walk and the creation of the ŁazART Tour Map and supported the publication of our Łazarek activation library: “Women’s equal rights: history written by women” after meeting with Poznań writers “Women writers” in the anarchist Zemsta cafe.
Open Activating Library
In 2019, we expanded the offer of the “Open Activating Library” and “ŁAZAREK Information Corner” by 8 books, which we believe will be useful in Łazarz and will support the possibility of acting in 2020. We offered constant access to information materials, textbooks on multiculturalism, anti-discrimination, and society civic, volunteering, human and animal rights, ecology, but also about Lazarus and Poznań and activities taking place in Lazarus. The library also functioned after the end of the project, constantly raising the knowledge of the inhabitants of Łazarz on the abovementioned topics – the result will be permanent.

Campaign “Czysty Łazarz” – which took place as follows, on November 21 there was a meeting on smog, then we carried out two meetings at school on the same topic, in these meetings jointly participated -10 adults and about 30 children aged 12-16 years. It was important for us that both adults and young people were given knowledge about the pollution of Poznań. A meeting in the Quarter with expert Cezary Czemplinek, who lectures on smog and anti-smog campaigns, and how smog has a negative effect on our body and health, took place on Thursday, November 21. (8 people came to the meeting, a film from these meetings can be found on the Facebook page – “Czysty Łazarz”, 15 people watched us during live streaming). The meeting was conducted as part of the Campaign, it was preceded by two workshops held at Junior High School No. 51 on ul. Klaudyna Potocka, and the Primary School on ul. Berwinskiego 26. During the classes, the educator, being a participant in a meeting in the Subdivision on the subject of smog, conducted workshops encouraging pupils and students to create their own campaign on air pollution, focusing especially on the locality of the problem. As part of the Czysty Łazarz campaign and the CIL program duration the following year, such a campaign will be produced. Also next year, there will be workshops to prepare young people to design the campaign, create a budget and think about forms of promotion. In total, there were about 30 children plus two teachers at the workshops.
As part of the CIL project, we learn how to diagnose our district:
A team of 4 brave researchers(Florentyna Macioszczyk, Zuzanna Szczepanik, Marta Szymaniuk and Tomasz Białecki) learn how to research local problems, the situation of Lower Lazarus, the needs of its inhabitants and adapt social activities to them.
In addition, we invite you for free cycles of development and intercultural training “Mind, soul, heart”, intergenerational and intercultural meetings “Through the stomach to culture”, meetings with interesting people, lectures and lectures, neighborhood picnics and many more.
