The Baltic Sea Culture Centre – a cultural institution operating under the auspices of the Pomeranian self-government – for more than 25 years has been popularising and promoting culture, as well as participating in joint cultural activities with other countries, especially those in the Baltic region.
BSCC organises a variety of cultural events (concerts, literary meetings, film shows, performances, exhibitions, workshops, conferences, cultural and social actions) and implements projects of regional, national and international outreach. The Centre also carries on publishing activities and engages in efforts shaping the Baltic region cultural policy.
The events organised by the Baltic Sea Culture Centre pivot around the relevant current issues, often sensitive and controversial – inter-cultural dialogue, national stereotypes, dynamic social and cultural transformation, as well as the role of culture in contemporary life. The projects are prepared by a professional team that invites artists, scientists, experts, national and international and organisations and institutions to participate in their implementation.
BSCC operates in two locations, both of which are historic buildings. One of them is the Old Town Hall – a 400-year-old building, one of the few Gdańsk monuments that survived World War II. The other is the Gothic St. John’s Church, combining the sacred function with cultural activities.
