The Adam Mickiewicz Institute is a national cultural institute, whose mission is to build and communicate the cultural dimension of the Poland brand through active participation in international cultural exchange. The Institute has carried out cultural projects in 70 countries. As of early 2016, the AMI has presented more than 5,500 cultural events, attracting an audience of more than 52 million on five continents. All of the Institute’s projects carry our flagship brand, culture.pl.
The Institute’s culture.pl portal offers a daily information service covering key events related to Polish culture around the world: In addition to information on events organised in Poland and abroad, the portal features numerous artist profiles, reviews, essays, descriptive articles and information about cultural institutions. The site is available in three languages: Polish, English and Russian. In 2015 the portal won the Guarantee of Culture award in the category Culture on the Net. In 2017 Culture.pl announced a new project: Stories From The Eastern West. It is a new audio show that reveals hidden history from Central and Eastern Europe. Intertwining in-depth interviews, rich sound design and original music to build compelling narrative stories, the podcast is the start of a new chapter for Culture.pl.
