The “Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre” Centre is a local government cultural institution based in Lublin. It works towards the preservation of cultural heritage and education. Its function is tied to the symbolic and historical meaning of the Centre’s location in the Grodzka Gate, which used to divide Lublin into its respective Christian and Jewish quarters, as well as to Lublin as a meeting place of cultures, traditions and religions.

Part of the Centre are the House of Words and the Lublin Underground Trail.

Who come to us as a part of European voluntary service?

The "Grodzka Gate - NN Theatre" Centre has hosted international volunteers of European Voluntary Service (EVS) programme since 2004. This is the fruit of our cooperation with the organisation Aktion Sühnezeichen Friedensdienste - ASF that recruits German and Ukrainian volunteers willing to take part in projects connected with World War II and the results of National Socialism. Now, apart from ASF in inviting volunteers we are supported by Lublin foundation Sempre a Frente whose mission is Learning and Development through Experience.

Thanks to this cooperation 20 young people from Israel, France, Germany and Ukraine worked with us in 2004-2016. They wanted to get familiar with Lublin and help us daily in our activities. EVS volunteers always accompanied us thoughtout this time. Thank you very much!

What do our volunteers do?

Our volunteers are participants of the Programm European Voluntary Service (EVS)  funded by  the European Comission within Young Erasmus +. When volunteers came to the Centre, they have possibility to take part in the realization current projects and become a support in the realization their own initiatives. Staying during few months in Lublin is an example of multiculturalism for the both sides and the source of inspiration for current initiatives in the Centre.
