Steam Engines of Culture prizes


On Friday, 15th June, our main workshop once again hosted an event devoted to the people of culture from Skierniewice. The name of the gala – Steam Engines of Culture – makes the Shed a perfect location fur such an event. It is its third edition, end we would like to note, that last year our colleague and the vice-president of PARE, Judyta Kurowska-Ciechańska, received a prize for her exceptional involvement in the renovation of the Engine Shed. This year we were happy to witness our long-term friends and partners as the prize winners.


Zbyszek Gradowski has many times visited the Shed and documented it on his beautiful photographs. He is also a great admirer of the history of Skierniewice and the long forgotten or dismantled locations in the city like the Władysław Stokacz’s brewery. He is also the president of the Skierniewice Beer Guild which supports the renovation of our beer refrigerator car. Moreover, he is the author of the portal devoted mostly to the history of Skierniewice. Domonika Dawidowicz is the founder and the supervisor of the theatrical group Banana Perwers. Along with her students she has organized many spectacles during the events in the engine shed.


Other prizes went to the people supporting the cultural activities in Skierniewice, The recipients were: Piotr Bigos (manager of the cinema and theatre “Polonez”), Irena Socichowska (vocal teacher) and Monika Kotowska (choreographer and the supervisor of the AT 4-20 dance group). During the gala, Mrs Grażyna Głuszek was praised for her financial support of the cultural events in Skierniewice. The artistic part of the event was performed by the Banana Perwers members – Zuzia Ambroziak and Włodzimierz Stefanowicz.

We would like to once again congratulate Dominika, Zbyszek and other recipients of the prize.
