The Institute of Urban Culture is an institution that has been working for several years close to the residents of Gdańsk. It offers events that explore the city through art, literature, social activities and activities in the urban space. Streetwaves, NARRACJE or Local Guides show the potential of many neighbourhoods and strong local communities that actively build culture in Gdansk. In the new headquarters of the IKM – in the Water Craft building at 11 Targ Rakowy Street – we are gaining a new space for development, cultural participation, meetings and the presentation of new initiatives,” says Aleksandra Dulkiewicz, Mayor of Gdańsk
The design of the building was created by Studio Kwadrat. The designers gave the building a dark façade, which corresponds to the historical buildings in the neighbourhood. Inside, there will be an auditorium for regular film screenings, meetings and literary festivals. It will also be a venue for lectures and conferences. The building will have three training rooms and a bookshop. The City Bistro will also operate here
We will continue our current cycles here – Miastoprojekcje, in which we present author-selected documentaries and films on the city, urban planning and architecture, Non-fiction, in which a book is the starting point for a discussion on current topics, and lectures in the series, ” says Aleksandra Szymańska, director of the Institute of Urban Culture
An interesting feature will be a model of the contemporary city centre of Gdańsk. Thanks to the model, it will be easier to plan the route of the city tour. The design of the building was created in 2012 and won first prize in an international competition organised by SARP
