June 13, four people from the ECC international selection committee will come to Lublin. Jurors will stay in our city for one day. The main purpose of their visit is, as we read in the letter sent by the Ministry of Culture, to acquaint members of the Selection Committee with a real image of the city and the presentation of the main events of the ECC 2016. What does this mean for us? We must prepare for them a nine-hour program of the visit, including meetings and sightseeing tour. We know that jurors pay attention to people on the streets. Sometimes, they ask them if they knew that the city wanted to become European Capital of Culture and if they supported these efforts. Therefore, we encourage our residents to think about how they can convince the jury on June 13 that it is Lublin that should become the ECC 2016.

The works on the multimedia underground museum in the Old Town have commenced. Before the first visitors enter the new museum, the underground rooms will undergo an overhaul. The signs and sources of dampness and salinity on walls need to be removed, new electric circuit needs to be installed, and then the exhibits need to be placed in the museum. The main idea and purpose of the museum is to show the tourists the unique frescoes dating back to the 15th century and to create a museum that is absolutely one of a kind: a museum with no glass displays and “untouchable” exhibits, and which would present the history of Lublin in a modern and gripping way.

The fifteenth anniversary is a chance for the organizers to summarize and gather all the most precious values of the event, and to introduce several new elements that will enrich the formula of the festival.
