What's new in the ICC? Plans and objectives for 2020

Graphic representations of flora and fauna from the Linnaeus era, the splendor and misery of interwar Germany and Poland, detained on photographs, as well as the Polish-Ukrainian tale of cultural and historical narratives of "Ukrainian myths" - this year's exhibition proposals of the International Cultural Center in Krakow.

Exhibition Photoblock. Central Europe in photobooks - opened in the fall of 2019 - tell the fate of our part of the continent in more than a century. In 2020, we'll look in more detail at our neighbors from the west, east and south. Each of the exhibitions will be an excuse to implement a rich cultural education program addressed to various audiences, including children, youth, seniors, and taught in Polish, Ukrainian and English. These will be lectures, workshops, gallery lessons or walks. The program implemented by the ICC - expanded year by year - is gaining recognition, which is confirmed not only by numerous awards, but above all by the growing public interest in active forms of participation in culture.

Invariably, the ICC devotes attention to the socio-economic potential of heritage, primarily through two long-term international research projects: ILUCIDARE - analyzing the relationship between cultural heritage and innovation and heritage diplomacy - and HOMEE - to better understand the impact of major events on cities with a rich cultural heritage. The ICC is the only institution in Poland dealing in an interdisciplinary way with international cultural heritage and is still developing its function as a think tank, which collects, interprets and shares the achievements of various currents of science and practice within modern heritology.
