What are Nowe Obroty (New Revolutions)?

Jan Świerkowski

A bold look into the future, where the application of critical thinking is key to understanding and embracing upcoming changes. Despite the desire to live in the present and preserve what is dear to us, tomorrow remains undiscovered, although we shape it today.

As part of Nowe Obroty (New Revolutions), the final act of the Year of Nicolaus Copernicus, we face the challenge of delving into ideas with the potential to change our perception of the world and our place in it. We focus on two issues: the detection of extraterrestrial life, a potential discovery that could radically alter our earthly identity, and equality for everyone – a revolution that demands not only scientific courage but also concrete action.

Nowe Obroty is not just an arena for scientific and artistic expression but, above all, a space of inspiration for personal exploration and reflection on tomorrow. Encounters with prominent figures – from a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and NASA scientists to Harvard University researchers, Leszek Możdżer, and Professor Paweł Nurowski with their revolutionary project of a decaphonic piano – invite you to a world where science and art merge, opening new perspectives for philosophical considerations about the nature of reality, time, and space.

I want to invite you to join us in experiencing this extraordinary journey that inspires a deeper understanding of the Universe.
