The Polish Institute in Düsseldorf was established in 1993 in western Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia, Hesse, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland). So far over two thousand projects were realised within its framework. The Institute’s activities concentrate on organising events in the field of art, politics, history, science and creative entrepreneurship. Through cooperation with German partners, it co-creates programmes of many renowned festivals and fairs of music, film, theatre and literature. The Institute enables and supports dialogue between the Poles and the Germans, as well as the exchange between artists, scientists and entrepreneurs from different generations. Taking into account local realities and target groups, it creates the attractiveness of the Polish national brand in Germany.
