International Cultural Center

 

ICC

 

 

The activity of the International Cultural Centre focuses on a multidimensional approach to cultural heritage. Our interests focus on: the cumulative legacy of the European civilisation, Central Europe’s multiculturalism, memory and identity, dialogue between cultures and societies, preservation of historic sites and artefacts, cultural policies, the phenomenon of a historical city, and also the origins and development of modern art. 

The International Cultural Centre is: 

 

  • a venue for meetings and reflection on heritage;
  • a centre of excellence for heritage studies;
  • a library of knowledge about heritage;
  • a heritage information centre; and
  • a safe haven for art and architecture.

 


Location

 

The International Cultural Centre is based in the Ravens House (“Pod Kruki”) at 25 Main Market Square (Rynek Główny 25), a witness of all the major events that have taken place right in the centre of Krakow over the ages. The windows which look into the Main Market Square and onto the Cloth Hall, representative of Renaissance architecture, and the Gothic-style Town Hall Tower, also made it possible to view the Prussian Homage (1525), the Kosciuszko Insurrection (1794), Józef Piłsudski’s funeral procession (1935), enthronements, homages paid to kings, carnivals, parades, popular assemblies, state ceremonies, but also riots, demonstrations and revolutions (1846, the 1848 Springtime of the Peoples, or the martial law of 1981). The house itself has had a number of functions: an aristocratic palace, Krakow’s social salon, the starost’s office, a bank, the NSDAP headquarters for the General Gouvernment, and, subsequently, a Committee of the Polish Workers Party, a publishing house, a school dance, a bookshop, and since 1991 the home and showcase of the ICC.
