The chosen institutions which promote Polish culture abroad:
The Fryderyk Chopin Institute deals with the dissemination of knowledge about Fryderyk Chopin and his music, promotion of young talent, publications, organisation of concerts, conferences, and courses. They are the initiator of the International Music Festival “Chopin and His Europe” and since 2010 they are the organiser of the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition.
The International Cultural Centre focuses its scientific and research interests on the issues of broadly understood cultural heritage in active dialogue with Poland’s neighbors and with the world, especially in Central Europe.
The Adam Mickiewicz Institute promotes Polish culture in the world by organising cultural events and cultural collaboration with other countries. So far it has organised 5,500 events in 70 countries for nearly 52 million recipients on 5 continents.
The Book Institute deals with the popularisation of books, reading, and the promotion of Polish language and literature in the world. Thanks to the translation program “©Poland”, over 200 translations of Polish books have been published in recent years. The Institute is the founder of the “Transatlantyk” award, granted annually to authors of the best translation of Polish literature into a foreign language.
