The Rise of Eastern Culture

The Rise of Eastern Culture is a unique form of cultural cooperation of eastern Polish cities with Eastern Partnership countries.

For the first time on such a scale, three cities – Białystok, Lublin and Rzeszów – discover new opportunities for community cooperation to enhance the cross-border circulation of culture, artistic and cultural exchange, and the mobility of artists and their works. The artistic programme is based primarily on the initiatives of local cultural operators and artists, the exchange of artistic projects between cities, and joint projects with artists from Eastern Partnership countries. The first joint venture between the cities in 2013 is the organization of three festivals: the European Stadium of Culture in Rzeszow, Another Dimension in Białystok and Integrations-Mediations in Lublin.
