The ”Freedom Container” project ended with a debate entitled “Freedom or Not?” which was held on the 27th of October at the Państwo Miasto Cafe in Warsaw. The debate concerned civil involvement in contemporary Poland. The participants included: Jadwiga Czartoryska (Orange Foundation), prof. Ireneusz Krzemiński (University of Warsaw), Dorota Warakomska (Women’s Congress), Kuba Wygnański (Stocznia Foundation) and Piotr Wójcik (author of “Polish Freedoms”.)
