More than two years ago, the Elbląg Museum of Archaeology and History has started the implementation of the project "Museums over the borders. Stage II ”co-financed by the European Union, within the European Neighbourhood Instrument. As part of the project, i.a. two new exhibitions were opened, a herb garden was created and equipment for outdoor events was purchased. To celebrate the end of the project, on 11 June 2022, the Museum in cooperation with the C. Norwid Elbląg Library organises the Kulturalne (Nie)pokoje event (Cultural (Un)rest).
The event will start at 6.00 p.m. in the Elbląg Library with a meeting with Mrs Krystyna Kurczab-Redlich, a well-known journalist, an author of reports and films documenting the war in Chechnya and a long-time correspondent in Moscow. The meeting will be chaired by the director of the Elbląg Library – Jacek Nowiński.
At 7.30 pm in the courtyard of the Museum you will be able to listen to a concert of young promising jazzmen from Elbląg: Michał Korsak on drums, Kamil Hajduk on double bass, Antoni Borycki on keyboards and Szymon Dybała on trumpet, who will present well-known jazz standards in a refreshed formula.
The last point of the Kulturalne (NIE)pokoje will be a performance by Teatr Formy prepared on the basis of Franz Kafka's "Trial", which will start at 9.00 pm. The play is universal and timeless. The piece lacks a precise specification of the time and place of the action, and the scenery of space suggests that the described events could happen anywhere, regardless of the era. Józef Markocki is the director and the author of the script, Ilona Szurkowska is responsible for the set design, and the music was composed by Zygmunt Konieczny.
Admission to the event is free, and the whole event was financed by the European Union, within the European Neighbourhood Instrument. The organiser of the event is the Museum of Archaeology and History in Elbląg, the co-organiser is the C. Norwid Elbląg Library.
