 description:  The project's main aim is to create and to approbate a dynamic model for communication and common actions between different stakeholders in cultural sphere. It includes: mapping of the Bulgarian cultural policy field, i.e. the analysis of interested parties in cultural policy processes; classification of the stakeholders in 7 conditional positions (“political position”, “cultural actors’ position”, “business”, “consumers”, “media”, “subcultures”, “researchers”, “amateur arts’ position”); study and analysis of key actors in every position; determination of the necessary steps in the communicative process for resolution of cultural problems; determination of conditions for the effective participation (at determinate stages) of the different stakeholders. The active interaction between practitioners from the cultural field and theorist from the academic circles was one of the leading conditions for the project success.

Main project activities were:
- Design of an applied model for inclusion of all stakeholders in cultural policy processes
- Series of researches on key actors in cultural policy field – institutions and organizations, incl. identification of the missing actors and empty places
- Two reports on the economic and legislative situation in the country
- Three round tables on the “Financing of culture” topic with participation of the representatives of the 7 positions, incl. NGOs, executive and legislative power.
- Advocacy campaign for professional and civil participation in cultural policy decision-making

One of the main results of this project was the creation of the National Civil Forum Culture - a wide coalition of civil society structures in different fields of culture. In April 2002, by signing a Partnership Agreement with the Ministry of Culture and the Parliamentary Committee on Culture, the National Civil Forum Culture was acknowledged as a legitimate partner of the public authorities, possessing the respective competences.

Implementation period: November 2001 – March 2002
