The Polish Culture Society of Edmonton, established over three decades ago, has made a tremendous contribution to the city's cultural life.
Based in Edmonton, Alberta's capital city, the Polish Culture Society of Edmonton has successfully launched collaborative projects with similar organizations in Calgary and Vancouver, as well as with arts organizations and academic institutions across Canada and abroad.
The Society's main goal is the preservation, promotion and development of Polish culture, language, traditions and customs within a Canadian context. The Polish artistic communities and individuals who through artistic talents and hard work are contributing to Alberta Culture are of particular importance and interest here. www.tkpedmonton.org
