The Polish Cultural Council's mission is to showcase the best in the Polish arts and sciences and promote unity among the Southwest Pennsylvania's Polish-American community. The PCC has its roots in the Central Council of Polish Organizations, founded 75 years ago to foster coordination among the myriad Polish fraternal, social and religious organizations.

The PCC partners with community institutions such as WQED-FM, University of Pittsburgh, the Carnegie Museums and Soldiers and Sailors Memorial to sponsor and produce a variety of Polish cultural events, programs, lectures and exhibitions. The PCC offers displays of traditional Polish art and dance, and publishes a quarterly newsletter, The Polish Journey, which is sent to over 1,000 interested individuals, organizations and members.
