Chess in the National Gallery

Judit Polgar Chess Foundation

10/10/2020 - A special event on a special date

We have been working hard on organizing the 6th edition of the Global Chess Festival. As many other activities in 2020, it will run mainly on an online platform, but we plan to have some programs at our beautiful venue, the Hungarian National Gallery as well. Of course, due to the pandemic we will take the effective regulations and restrictions concerning safety precautions into consideration. Whatever the circumstances may be, we do not have to give up on the majority of our program, what's more, there will be some new elements, too: tournaments, talks on chess and its relation to sports, sciences, arts and education, surprise guests, exclusive chess films as well as chess puzzles, coding games and chess math for kids. We invite organizers from all around the world to join us online with their own chess event on the same day, offering more publicity and enabling networking on our common platform, as "Chess Connects Us" in the virtual space even stronger.
