BUILDINGS WITH A PAST - TREASURES OF THE FUTURE

About the competition

„Zabytek – nie zapomnij! Monument – mention it!

is a German-Polish monument conservation competition organised by the Association for the Care of Silesian Art and Culture (VSK) and the OP ENHEIM Foundation in cooperation with the German-Polish Foundation for the Care of Culture and the Protection of Monuments to support sustainable monument conservation on small objects in the historic landscape of Lower Silesia. 

Special emphasis is placed on performing the renovation in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner

In addition, the award aims to raise awareness among local people about the importance of the relationship between the environment, sustainable development and cultural heritage on both sides of the Polish-German or Lower-Saxon border. The competition emphasizes the importance of Lower Silesia as a European meeting place and common cultural space, and shows Polish-German history in the context of a common positive experience and challenge in a united Europe.

The award is intended to encourage private developers, non-profit organisations or comparable legal entities to invest in objects of historical or art-historical significance. The objects should regain their former beauty and significance in the overall picture of Lower Silesian towns, communities and landscapes. The winners of the competition will receive prize money of total amount of 18.500 PLN.
