The report presents a qualitative analysis and a diagnosis of the state of culture in Malopolska regarding cultural stages in communes and the establishment of local cultural policies. During field research we interviewed 120 cultural actors from 10 communes in Malopolska (focus groups, in-depth interviews and participant observation, supportively). We intended to discover to what extent cultural services (the whole cultural offer available in the commune) are connected with cultural practices (broadly understood participation in culture), and the ways cultural policies are managed on the local level (i.e. how the services programme is established and what it is intended to do).
