The IMiT runs residency, artistic, research, publishing and grant programmes designed for the Polish music and dance communities. The Institute runs a wide range of educational activities and also encourages quality improvement in music and dance education and supports cultural institutions and non-governmental organisations.

The IMiT participates in the exchange of information and experience between Polish and international professional organizations. It runs a database of artists and works, and actively supports the development of professional music and dance communities in Poland, organising the Polish Music Convention and the Dance Congress which provide ample space for exchange of experiences and self-reflection, as well as running conferences, workshops and training for dance and music professionals. It also develops publicly available special reports and expert opinions, and runs a programme assisting dance artists in acquiring new professional qualifications.

The IMiT is also the main organiser of important cultural events across Poland, such as the biennial Polish Dance Platform, the annual Coryphée of Polish Music award, and two competitions that are held alternately, the Young Musician of the Year and the Young Dancer of the Year.

TROIS C-L has been working with IMiT since 2018. After Andréa Rama in 2018, Tania Soubry went to Poland in September 2019 to work on her new project Brave (K)new Rave, whereas TROIS C-L hosted Polish artist Artur Bieńkowski in end of October 2019.

In 2020, young Luxembourgish choreographer William Cardoso was supposed to go to Lublin for a residency period. Polish choreographer Urszula Bernat-Jałocha was supposed to come to TROIS C-L in autumn.

Because of the COVID-19 epidemic, this exchange has been postponed to 2021. William Cardoso will go to Lublin to work on his project RAUM. He will show a work-in-progress and will give a workshop for non professionals. Polish artist Katarzyna Baran will come to Luxembourg in September for a residency and to take part in a 3 du TROIS.

Urszula Bernat-Jałocha will come to TROIS C-L in 2022.
