It’s been common knowledge for some time that Lublin is a city with high aspiration: to become the window on the East of Europe. And in this direction the city, located in eastern Poland, was following while pursuing the title of the Capital of Culture 2016. The Eastern Partnership Culture Congress was to be the trump card in the battle for the title and a noteworthy cultural element of the Polish EU Presidency programme back in 2011. Even if in the end Lublin lost in the race, the East is ever present in the city on the bank of Bystrzyca River.
The East of Europe
Education | Art | Culture| Mobility | Cooperation
This year’s Congress joins forces with the Eastern Europe Initatives Congress and together they create a special programme:
“Culture for the Eastern Partnership”
“We recognise culture as a substantially important determinant of social and economic development which creates dialogue above borders and opens new possibilities of activity in transnational dimension and in particular – in European dimension”.
