International Cultural Centre  Popular
Description: Cultural heritage, reflections on complexity of European civilisation, identity and collective memory, presentation and promotion of art, preservation of historical monuments, culture management, dialogue of cultures and societies – these issues are the prime focus of the International Cultural Centre in Krakow.

The Centre launched its activities on 29th May 1991 during the CSCE symposium in Krakow. It was a special moment: the first big meeting of East and West dedicated to culture and cultural heritage since the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989. This way the newly set-up institution with a clear mission made its presence felt on the international forum from its inception. The core idea of the Centre is inter-cultural communication and creating a common Europe that bridges political, ideological and religious divisions and underscores the significance of Central Europe for European and global heritage.

The International Cultural Centre is a research, expert institution which is active in the areas of art exhibitions, promotion and publishing. In its many fields of interest it integrates art, history, culture and philosophical thought into the realities of politics and free market economy. It successfully blends modernity with tradition, as illustrated by the Centre’s seat, the Ravens House, with its historical interiors fitted with state-of-the-art technical equipment. Here, the wide public meets scholars, artists and politicians, young people hold debates with distinguished intellectuals, and everyone can explore old and modern art.
