With great sadness we inform that Barbara Luszawska has passed away –
Manager of Lublin culture, founder of the Lublin Jazz Festival, a brave woman.
Basia was associated with the Cultural Center in Lublin since 1982. She has been involved in many projects, but in recent years music has become her greatest love. Until 2021, she organized the 12th editions of the Lublin Jazz Festival, which is the largest event of this type in the region. She was a great promoter of jazz in Lublin. Thanks to her, this music sounded in many places in our city. The number of individual concerts of the most interesting artists from Poland and abroad, which she has organized for Lublin residents over the years, cannot be easily counted.
Basia Luszawska was also a co-initiator and coordinator of the unique Land Art Festival project. Together with Jarosław Koziara, she invited artists of various disciplines of visual arts from all over the world, looking for a new formula for the land art.
We express our sincere condolences to her family and all her relatives.
