Universalism and Progressive Cultural Politics

Universalism seems to be one of the most ambivalent and contradictory, yet also valuable elements of the European cultural legacy.

Together with Biennale Warszawa, EUNIC Warsaw published its first book, devoted to the issue of universalism, which was addressed during the symposium „The Missing Denominator”.

The EUNIC Warsaw Cluster operates since 2007 with about 30 active members, associates and partners within the umbrella organisation EUNIC Global (European Union National Institutes for Culture). We aim to create effective partnerships and networks between National Institutes for Culture, embassies and other organisations within Poland, the European Union and in third countries. Our goals are to promote cultural diversity and understanding between European societies and to strengthen international dialogue and cultural cooperation, applying a cross-cutting approach to culture that includes inter alia arts, science, education and research.

 Our activity is focused on:

  • Reinforcing the networking of Europe’s national cultural institutes and embassies in Warsaw and generating synergies and effective partnerships within the network and with other professionals working in the field of culture and beyond in Poland.
  • Expanding the role of culture in modern society and strengthening the sense of belonging to a rich and diverse European cultural community.
  • Promoting European culture and the values that underpin it, such as cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue, gender equality and multilingualism.
  • Strengthening and maintaining cultural dialogue, exchanges and cooperation with third countries.
