The Polyglot Gathering is an event for polyglots, run by polyglots, and it is the result of many hours of work of a lot of people. We welcome help from any volunteers who can help us, whether it’s before, during or after the gathering, be it for just a few hours or every day. It is not required that you speak Polish or live in Poland. If you would like to help us and get a discount from the registration fee in exchange, please register as a participant and write in the Note how you would like to help. We’ll contact you by email afterwards. 🙂 Thank you!
