Oliwa Culture City Hall
Since last year, the beautifully renovated 19th/20th century townhouse at Oliwa’s 25 Opata Jacka Rybinskiego Street has been a popular space for all things cultural – music, theatre, visual arts, film, literature and healthy eating.
Thanks to the aforementioned townhouse’s new interior design, Oliwa and Gdansk have gained an entirely new, fantastic place for organising events and community building. The City Hall’s ground floor contains a room which serves as a venue for concerts, plays and film screenings several times
a week. The room is also an exhibition space – it houses paintings, graphics, drawings and photographs by both Polish and international artists.
A restaurant offering healthy and delicious food made from ingredients from local providers is planned to open in the adjacent room. The restaurant will also serve as a reading room, book and art shop.
The first floor is also to be redesigned in the near future – as a space for cultural education. The Oliwa Academy of Art will use the three workshops available there to offer classes and lectures on the following topics: Literature, Visual Arts, Handicraft, Fashion and Beauty, Family, Nature, Film, Theatre, New Technology and Oliwa Studies. Currently, the spacious hall houses a sculpture gallery.
It is also worth mentioning that the building is 100% disability-friendly.
