The modernization of the space goes hand in hand
with the modernisation of the technical equipment and
processes. What have been the most significant changes
and innovations? Does the new building have any
unusual technical solutions?

highest-quality sound system.
You have prepared a varied program for cultural

Do you offer anything new besides theatre, concerts and
events for children?
The A&P ACADEMY center has been established, which
will offer vocational training. Many projects have been
prepared for seniors, who make up a substantial part of
the population in Poruba. We also plan to establish an
entrepreneurs club. And of course we will rent all the
premises for the organisation of conferences, balls, etc. We
have a lot of ideas. We know that people will find their way
to POKLAD. We are very much looking forward to seeing
them, because only the energy and emotions of the visitors
will give soul to even the most successful renovation.
Thank you for the interview.
