8.2.2 Policies and programmes
There are no specific programmes or policy initiatives to promote participation in cultural life or an explicit policy linking participation in cultural life to the broader issues of civic participation, citizenship, civil society development / cohesion etc.
Special segments of the population (school children, students) pay 50% of the full ticket price for museums, but this can hardly be called a programme or policy initiative.
In 2008, the project "Active citizenship and participative cultural policy" was promoted by the Multimedia Centre for Performing Arts. The project-workshop is aimed at the representatives of local administrations, cultural institutions and local NGOs of initially five communities. The main goal is finding suitable mechanisms that would lead to systematic cultural development in the local communities.
