The Iskra Project is building sustainability and cross-generational communication within the Polish diaspora (“Polonia”) in Canada. It is comprised of senior post-secondary students and recent alumni reaching out to high school students across the Greater Toronto Area, inviting them to explore and integrate their Polish roots into forming a deeper sense of who they are, and to use their rich heritage to build a strong personal cultural network, wherever they may be.

A huge shout-out to Marcin Lewandowski and Mateusz Bartoszek for filming, to Peter Chrapka for compiling the footage, and to Magda Sulżycka for coordinating the entire effort! Thanks also to Natalia Kusendova for providing additional direction, and to Philip Chrapka, Maciej Hryniewicki, Ania Rak, Joanna Sulżycka, and Paul Sulżycki for granting interviews.
