Last Saturday of the vacation on 27 August 2016 the Family Picnic took place on the Bishop Hill within the cycle To Understand August. The Doraco Construction Corporation supported the event by providing its participants with a viewing terrace including a telescope that is a perfect spot to observe Gdańsk panorama and the emerging Forum Gdańsk complex, the investment executed, among others, by Doraco.
Residents of the Bishop Hill worked together for a month prior to the event to decorate their surroundings, including painting two murals, planting flowers and arranging a backyard neglected so far at Na Stoku Street. A culmination of the efforts was the Picnic that involved not only the estate residents but also from other districts of Gdańsk.
The event participants had the opportunity to listen to two concerts – performed by the “Pumps Repair” band of Gdańsk and children who were premiered on that day before a wide audience on unusual instruments made personally during music workshops. Trips around the district were also organized for volunteers with the local guides, among others a special tour following the writer Brunon Zwarra, the author of adventures of the cultic cockney of Gdańsk as well as a photo exhibition and the movie screening of “The woman with no space” with an open discussion. There were also the attractions for kids.
The Bishop Hill is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Gdańsk located on the hill at the border between the Downtown and Chełm districts. The Doraco Construction Corporation supported the several local initiatives in the district so far, among others by giving books donated by employees to the WAGA Association library.
