Other initiatives

AMU Foundation has organised four editions of the photo competition: “AMU – my university”. It was one of the events organised for the celebration of the Jubilee Decade of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (2009-2019).

Promotion of music is one of the activities of AMU Foundation. In close cooperation with Adam Mickiewicz University we support events organised at the University Aula, one of the largest concert halls in Poznań, as well as events taking place in the AMU Botanical Garden or in other locations in the region.
Among the events which have been organised, co-organised or supported by AMU Foundation are:

  • the International University Choir Festival “Universitas Cantat”: in 2015 the event was organised under the patronage and with the support of AMU Foundation;
  • “Koncerty pod Kasztanowcami” at the AMU Botanical Garden in 2015 were co-organised by AMU Foundation;
  • “Jazz Moods”  – Hanna Banaszak concert in 2014: AMU Foundation co-organised the event; the concert was part of the 14th European conference: Physics of Magnetism 2014 which was also co-organised by our Foundation;
  • a recital by Soyoung Yoon – the winner of the XIV Henryk Wieniawski International Competition in 2012: AMU Foundation co-organised the recital which was part of the Rector’s Concerts at the University Aula, one of the most representative concert halls in Poznań.

AMU Foundation is running the project involving the creation of four benches-sculptures which serve as memorials of the Founders of the University: Professor Heliodor Święcicki, Professor Józef Kostrzewski, Professor Michał Sobeski and Professor Rev. Stanisław Kozierowski.
The first sculpture-bench was erected on 8 May 2010 in front of AMU’s most representative building, i.e. Collegium Minus, the Rector’s office, at ul. Wieniawskiego 1. The bronze sculpture is dedicated to Professor Heliodor Święcicki, the first Rector of Adam Mickiewicz University.
The second memorial was erected on 16 October 2012 in the park of the former Imperial Castle, now the Zamek Culture Centre, which served as the first seat of the University. The memorial commemorates Professor Józef Kostrzewski.
