The rise in entertainment businesses, culture industries, and cultural tourism has attracted the attention of private companies; the number of private galleries, museums, antique shops, and national souvenirs and crafts producers is growing. In addition, design agencies, the book market, and printing houses are developing. Furthermore, the culture industries such as book publishing, the press, audio-visual and phonogram production, entertainment industries and new technologies are undergoing rapid development.
The general picture is that if you look at the directions, it is striking that the institutions and organisations of cultural heritage (immovable, movable and intangible) are mainly under the management of state bodies. On the contrary, the cultural industries’ various forms of organisation are more concentrated in the private and non-state spheres. Professional art (music, theatre, fine arts) is somewhere in the middle in this “public-private scale”. That is, where it is about the preservation of traditions and personnel training, it is primarily concentrated in state institutions. Nevertheless, the performing arts and concert activities are already more eager to monetise and are more commercial. Moreover, many activities in arts and culture, namely festivals, concerts, fairs, etc., both international and local, attract a significant share of sponsorship from the private sector.
In total, state cultural policy in cultural infrastructure prescribes:
- Modernisation of the material and technical bases with the construction of specialised buildings and rehabilitation of cultural institutions;
- Equipping cultural enterprises with modern engineering and information communication technologies;
- Providing cultural institutions with stage costumes, musical instruments, etc.
