    Though embarking on the next phase in the modernisation of the seat of the International Cultural Centre will entail a more modest exhibition programme in 2007, the renovation is another link in the process of developing a physical infrastructure for the dialogical space that the ICC has been building for the past several years. Restoring and modernising 1,480 m2, the design by Romuald Loegler will bring an extension to the Ravens Conference Complex, new exhibition space on a first-floor patio, and additional offices and seminar accommodation for the use of the library and publishing centre. This major project has been made possible by subsidies from the European Economic Area Financial Mechanism and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism. www.mck.krakow.pl
