Workshops of Culture
Workshops of Culture are the heart and mind behind open and non-standard activities in Lublin. They organise the four largest summer festivals in Lublin: Night of Culture, East of Culture–Different Sounds, Carnaval Sztukmistrzów and the Jagiellonian Fair. They are all rooted in Lublin’s history and traditions, have become an integral part of the city’s cultural landscape, and activate the local community.
The series focuses mainly on diverse prose and essays, but also on poetry. Our authors include the most prominent writers from Ukraine, Belarus or Lithuania, including Jurij Andruchowycz, Andrij Bondar, Oleksandr Bojczenko, Andrij Lubka, Hałyna Kruk, Mykoła Riabczuk, Natalka Śniadanko, but also authors little known in Poland. The range of our publications includes short stories by Oleg Sentsov, the filmmaker and writer who spent five years in the prison camps of present-day Russia. We are proud to collaborate with, among others, Bohdan Zadura, one of the most renowned Polish translators of Ukrainian prose and poetry. The name refers to the famous “literary trains”, such as Literature Express Europe 2000, which carried over 100 writers and poets from 43 countries from Lisbon to Berlin, and the Ukrainian magazine Potysah76 – “Pociąg 76” (Train 76), dedicated to Central-Eastern European culture.
