The European Solidarity Centre in Gdańsk wins the 2016 Council of Europe Museum Prize
According to the rapporteur on the Museum Prize, Vesna Marjanovic (Serbia, SOC), this museum is “a fascinating example of a cultural institution working to promote freedom and solidarity. The events it recounts and its programme make it a forum for modern Europe. It succeeds in making the history of the trade union Solidarnösc a powerful and moving source of inspiration for civic engagement and action. The Centre connects history with life and makes a direct link between culture and democracy.
The prize is decided on the basis of a shortlist presented by a jury of the European Museum Forum (EMF), and forms part of the European Museum of the Year Awards (EMYA). National Institute for Museums and Public Collections in Poland is the national correspondent of EMF in Poland.Wersja do druku
