Launching the state-run facility, Piotr Gliński said: “It’s a cultural institution tasked with promoting and supporting digital culture and creative industries in the broad sense.”

He added: “There will be space here for design, architecture, fashion, visual culture, gaming, theatre and dance.”

Gliński, who is also Poland’s culture minister, told a news conference that the new centre would “bring together different elements, aspects of culture, with a focus on new technology and entrepreneurship in culture.”

The institution aims to foster cooperation and help organisations from start-ups to NGOs „to forge links, locally as well as internationally,” Gliński said.

’United with Ukraine Game Jam’

Gliński told reporters that the new centre would on Friday evening stage the „United with Ukraine Game Jam,” an event billed as “the biggest post pandemic jam for game developers in Poland.”

Co-organised with the US government, the event was set to feature 350 participants from 16 countries, including more than 150 in-person attendees, Polish state news agency PAP reported. 

They planned to spend two days developing video games drawing on Ukraine’s cultural heritage, officials told reporters.
