The Małopolska cultural institution is to be a place for preserving, archiving and documenting, among others: folk writing, storytelling, music, costumes, rituals and customs. Therefore, the Institute’s Program Council was established, which – according to the announcement of the Marshal’s Office of the Małopolska Voivodeship – will, among others, consultancy, including setting and giving opinions on the directions of activities of the Luzmierz Institute.

Beata Szydło will head the council of the Institute of Intangible Heritage of the Carpathian Peoples
– I am sure that there is no need to justify this decision and at the same time I hope that such management of the council will ensure the highest quality of the institute we have established, but will also mean that, based on what was created here and the scope of the institution’s activities, we will become part of larger works throughout Poland. The Institute of Intangible Heritage of the Carpathian Peoples is a unique place combining traditions and culture with modernity, which will not only document the past, but also shape our present times – argued Kozłowski
Beata Szydło, in turn, said that the Institute of Intangible Heritage of the Carpathian Peoples will be important not only for Małopolska, but also for the whole of Poland. – But not only that, because the idea of the activity of this facility is also cooperation with other regions, also located abroad. The established Program Council includes representatives of Slovakia, Romania and Hungary, so it is a very important institution not only for Małopolska.
