Getting to know NECE projects – Jacek Królikowski for the “Library Development Program”

Jacek Królikowski

“It’s not as simple as saying that everything is available on the Internet” opens Jacek Królikowski our conversation about his interest in civic education. “Some people are not online, some are not even using a personal computer.” The Library Development Program, which Mr. Królikowski is presenting at this NECE conference, aims at helping libraries in rural Poland to transfer to cultural centers for community needs.

“Maybe this is not a typical project,” says Ewa Zadrzynska and smiles. She is working for the Evens Foundation’s office in Warsaw and comes to the NECE conference with “Poetry Unites – My Favorite Poem”. In this project poetry enthusiasts present their favourite lines before the camera and get their five minutes of fame: the short presentations are shown on Polish public television, at festivals and on other occasions raising attention. Also they are organising a nationwide contest for the best essay on a favourite issue in schools.
