Moving to the new building
After signing the erection act of European Solidarity Centre its founders announced an architectural competition on a new building for the institution, which was supposed to be erected in the area of the Gdansk Shipyard. The winning project greatly combined the needs of this huge and modern cultural institution with the historical space that is a part of UNESCO World Heritage List. The building was co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and the Gdansk City Council. It was also greatly supported by the European funds (European Regional Development Fund).
The new building of European Solidarity Centre was finished in 2014. All the institution’s collections were moved to its new headquarters. New archive space for storage was acquired, which helped to organize and digitalize gathered items, as well as to continue the works on extending the collections. Moreover, for the first time, the collections gained vast space for exhibition. In 2014 first permanent exhibition was created.
