About this hub

We are a young cultural institution, a team of young people united in new programs and ideas on culture in Lublin. We want to create and popularize culture based on creative activities and experiment, conduct cultural education supported by game of knowledge,  emotions and new technologies, cultivate traditions and identity of the place where we operate, and desire through culture to build social relations based on dialogue and cooperation.

We carry the biggest open space events in Lublin directed to the general public, as well as research and laboratory projects and educational programmes. The Workshops of Culture is a public municipal institution established in 2009.

On principle, our programming focuses on promoting the practice of „active culture”. To do so, we intend to create a cultural offer that is tailored to individual recipients – to residents wishing to participate actively in the cultural life of the city and to broaden their knowledge at the same time.

We keenly endorse and eagerly implement long-term development plans based on the sense of community shared by Lublin’s cultural operators and recipients of culture alike, acting together and supporting each other.

Liaising and networking with Polish and international partners, we become exposed to already established and highly efficient methods of cultural education, management, and animation. In addition, through extensive analysis of local needs we thoughtfully transplant and introduce the most reliable, sustainable, and fitting models to Lublin. Furthermore, we are committed to sharing our experience and expertise with other communities, both at home and abroad, in particular with Eastern Europe.

Everyday application of modern technologies in cultural education and in promotion of cultural heritage constitutes the core of our mission.

We strive to maintain the highest level of professionalism, making sure that our activities are interactive, interdisciplinary, innovative, constantly evolving, and always partnership-centred.
