Architectural Accessibility

The main offices Workshops of Culture in Lublin are located in the Old Town at Grodzka 5a street in historic buildings that are not fully accessible to persons with disabilities (two-storey, no lifts or ramps). Our website describes the accessibility of the building, including vital passageways. We are happy to assist anyone wishing to visit us despite the obstacles. Our team has been trained in basic assistance for persons with disabilities.

The closest parking area for persons with disabilities is in front of Lublin’ Cathedral, about 300 metres away from the offices of Workshops of Culture. For more information about parking spaces in the area, please visit www.kopertywmiescie.pl (Polish). The streets of the Old Town are cobblestone-covered, therefore covering the distance from the parking lot to the building may require assistance.
To reach Workshops of Culture, you can take a bus. The closest bus stops are: Krakowska Gate BRAMA KRAKOWSKA 01 [bus lines, 4, 6, 17, 39, 156, 160, N1, N2], BRAMA KRAKOWSKA 03 [bus lines 5, 22, 52] – both stops are at Lubartowska street, about 270 metres away from Workshops of Culture, BRAMA KRAKOWSKA 02 [bus lines 4, 39, 904, N1, N2], BRAMA KRAKOWSKA 04 [bus lines number 1, 6, 17, 23, 156, 160, 950] – both stops are at Królewska street, about 350 metres away from Workshops of Culture, the central bus station DWORZEC GŁÓWNY PKS 01 [bus lines 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 17, 18, 22, 29, 31, 32, 34, 39, 52, 57, 150, N2], the central bus station DWORZEC GŁÓWNY PKS 02 [bus lines 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 17, 18, 22, 23, 29, 31, 32, 34, 39, 52, 57, 150, N2] – both stops are at Al. Tysiąclecia and are about 400-500 metres away from Workshops of Culture.

The toilet in the building at Grodzka 5a is on the 2nd floor and has increased accessibility (doors 90 cm wide, grab bars by the toilet bowl and basin)

The toilets in the building at Grodzka 7 are on the first and second floors and are not adapted for persons with mobile disabilities, the blind or visually impaired.
Entering Workshops is possible with the help of service dogs, but blind and visually impaired persons should be aware that climbing the stairs may be difficult. We have a wheelchair ramp that makes it easier to access the corridor and patio of the building at Grodzka 7.

Neither of our two buildings is equipped with induction loops. There are no Braille or colour contrasting signs or markings in enlarged print for the blind and visually impaired.

Workshops of Culture also operate a Photography Studio, which is located at 3 Kowalska street. The entrance to the Studio is accessed via several narrow steps, approximately 1 metre in width. The doorway itself is 90 cm wide, with a very limited space preceding it. Within the studio, you will find a small dark room, which you access through an entrance that’s also about 90 cm wide. The studio is not equipped with induction loops, Braille or colour contrasting signs or markings in enlarged print for the blind and visually impaired.

Mobile apps:

The institution does not provide mobile applications

Attendees of our events have the option to borrow noise-cancelling headphones, suitable for both children and adults.

Currently, Workshops of Culture cannot offer continuous Polish Sign Language translations. However, if a request for Sign Language interpretation is made at least 5 days before your intended visit, such interpretation will be arranged. Requests can be made via phone, email, fax, or in person at the front office located on the first floor of the Grodzka 7 building. If the request cannot be accommodated, Workshops of Culture will notify the requester, providing an explanation and suggesting a feasible date for fulfilling the request or proposing an alternative method to exercise your rights.

We also want to inform you that many of our staff have completed a basic course in Polish Sign Language, while others are currently taking advanced courses. Workshops of Culture continue to improve the accessibility of their activities. They are working to improve their qualifications in accessibility, aiming to remove barriers and ensure that the events they organise are available to everyone.

We have put together a pre-visit guide for those who want to know what to expect in a new place. While it was created primarily with individuals on the autism spectrum in mind, we hope it will prove helpful for many visitors. Check it out!
Our institution is a friendly place for four-legged companions. Feel free to bring them along!

To encourage this, we’ve placed distinctive signs on the door of our institution, and for any thirsty pets, a bowl of fresh water is readily available in the corridor of the Grodzka 7 building. Our aim is for our events to be accessible and inviting to all – and that includes guests accompanied by their beloved pets.

The initiative is implemented within the framework of the 9th edition of Lublin’s Civic Budget project titled “Let’s Take Care of Animals”

Grodzka 5

Grodzka 5a – descriptions
Pub Bałagan is located on the ground floor of the tenement house at 5a Grodzka Street. There are four steps in front of the main entrance. To get to the cafe, you need to go straight ahead. Be careful, as the corridor is paved with uneven bricks. First, take twenty steps, then climb one step, and after that, take another fourteen steps. Go up three steps and you will find yourself near the door, which is on the right side.
The medialab is located on the first floor of the tenement house at 5a Grodzka Street. There are four steps in front of the main entrance. Once inside, be cautious as the corridor is paved with uneven bricks. To reach the medialab room, walk straight for twenty steps. Then, climb up one step and go three steps straight. Stop at the wooden stairs on the right side. They are equipped with handrails on both sides. Ascend thirteen steps, cross a landing, and then climb another eleven steps. The stairs turn, so holding onto the handrails will help with spatial orientation. On the first floor, to the left of the stairs, you will find the doors to the medialab. The doors have a raised threshold. Upon entering, you find yourself in the anteroom. Walk straight ahead for a few steps. Directly in front of the medialab room’s main doors, you’ll find another raised threshold. The room is equipped with tables and chairs.
The auditorium is situated on the second floor of the tenement at Grodzka Street 5a. In front of the main entrance, there are four steps. Once inside, tread carefully as the corridor features uneven brick paving. To get to the auditorium, walk straight ahead for twenty steps. Then, ascend one step and continue for another three steps straight. Pause at the staircase on the right, equipped with handrails on both sides for support. Climbing these stairs, first tackle thirteen steps to a landing, then proceed up another eleven steps. This stair pattern repeats as you ascend to the second floor. Next, turn right and advance three steps. On the right, wooden glazed doors lead into the auditorium. Crossing a high threshold, move straight for nine steps to enter the main area, where chairs are arranged and three steps provide additional seating for attendees.
The restroom is situated on the second floor of the tenement at 5a Grodzka Street. Before the main entrance, you’ll encounter four steps. Once inside, caution is advised as the corridor features uneven brick flooring. To get to the toilet, walk straight ahead for twenty steps. Then, ascend one step and continue for three more steps. Pause at the staircase on your right, equipped with handrails on both sides for support. Using the rails will help you keep spatial awareness. Proceed up thirteen steps to a landing, then another eleven steps. The layout of the stairs to the second floor mirrors this arrangement. Next, turn right and advance three steps. On your right, wooden glazed doors lead to both the toilet and the auditorium. Inside the toilet area, there are three stalls and sinks, but only the first stall on the right is designed to accommodate individuals with mobility disabilities. Directly opposite the entrance is a sink, with the toilet located on the left side of the same wall. Grab bars near both the toilet and sink are provided to facilitate room navigation.
