  • Faithful to my Homeland, the Republic of Poland
  • CULTURE.PL IN KOREA

  • The Adam Mickiewicz Institute along with its flagship brand Culture.pl has been promoting Polish culture in Asia since 2009. Some of the biggest events that have been organized under the auspices of Culture.pl in the Far East so far are, among others: the Polish cultural programme prepared for the 2010 EXPO in Shanghai, as well as a series of concerts and Polish theatre productions in Beijing and Tokyo  during the Polish Presidency in the EU in 2011. In 2012, Culture.pl focused on the promotion of Polish culture in Korea. Polish cinematography was showcased at the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) and a selection of some of the most interesting theatre productions from Poland were put on at the PAMS (Performing Arts Market in Seoul) and SPAF (Seoul Performing Arts Festival). Moreover, Polish musicians performed at the Jarasum Jazz and Tongyeoung Music Festivals, and Polish culture was also present at the PAMS and MU:CON trade fairs in Seoul.

     

    Culture.pl prepared many Polish cultural events in Korea in 2014 as well. In May, the prestigious LG Arts Center in Seoul hosted a theater production "A Piece on Mother and the Fatherland" directed by Jan Klata and the Uijeongbu Music Theatre Festival presented Maja Kleczewska`s contemporary interpretation of „Macbeth”. In October six Polish and Korean folk musicians under the guidance of Maria Pomianowska will present at the Sori Festival in Jeonju their joint music project combining elements of Polish and Korean folk music. Also in October Maciej Fortuna Trio and Rafal Sarnecki Quintet will perform at the Jarasum International Jazz Festival and there will be a chance to listen to new Polish music, which will be showcased at the Zandari Festa in Seoul.

     

    Culture.pl provides daily fresh information on the most exciting Polish cultural events worldwide. It is the biggest and most comprehensive source of knowledge about Polish culture – apart from event listings for Poland and beyond, it boasts a wealth of artist bios, reviews, essays, synopses and profiles of cultural institutions. For over a decade now, the culture.pl website has been operated by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute – a national cultural institution aiming to strengthen Polish cultural impact and to benefit international cultural exchange.

     

    Pursuing its mission, the Adam Mickiewicz Institute has been instrumental in presenting Polish culture around the world at leading galleries, theatres, clubs and festivals. About 4 000 projects carried out by the Institute so far include major cultural events in various countries, for example the Polish Year in Israel, POLSKA! YEAR in the UK, the International Cultural Programme of the Polish EU Presidency and Centenary of Witold Lutosławski 2013.  The Institute has also launched several exciting ongoing projects such as the programme promoting Polish design worldwide, the East European Performing Arts Platform and Polska Music to name but a few.
