Night of Culture

The last day of  was supposed to coincide with Lublin’s XIV  (Noc Kultury), an annual city-wide cultural event co-created by hundreds of artists and attended by thousands of visitors. As part of the conference, all participants were to be invited to join a special evening tour of the city center.

The theme of NoC changes every year. This year’s edition is titled CityTender (for “Tender is the night”). On April 23, 2020 the organizers announced that this year’s NoC would be pushed to autumn 2020 (click here to read the announcement). As it is unclear how the pandemic will unfold, we are not sure whether the event will take place at all. Yet, if everything works out fine, do consider participating, even if not as part of the conference. The event is remarkable.

For now, please enjoy the coverage of past Nights of Culture and read the description of this year’s event, courtesy of Noc Kultury and Warsztaty Kultury. Also, check out NoC Facebook profile.

“Night of Culture (NoC) is a city festival that lasts one night only. On this night, we look at the world through the eyes of artists and residents who enter into a dialogue with Lublin’s public spaces and change their image by creating installations and art objects in places that we normally do not expect to have such potential. Art enlivens unknown or forgotten places and the places we do know are shown in a different, unusual light.  The festival inspires both residents and visitors to discover the secrets and charms of Lublin. Night of Culture  is all about magical moments. It is a festival of endless surprises and a time when extraordinary things happen.” (source:
