Facilities for Cultural Democracy. Rotterdam Symposium on Sociocultural Facilities, (5-9 October 1970).
Council for Cultural Cooperation, Strasbourg (France).
These conference proceedings report the activities of one of a series of symposia dealing with the planning of sociocultural environment. This seminar was concerned specifically with sociocultural facilities and equipment serving the intellectual, artistic, and physical pursuits of individuals, families, and social groups. The main portion of the proceedings are the introductory remarks and discussion of the three main themes: leisure activities in the different European countries; government policies in the cultural field and their effect on facilities; and innovative pilot projects in the field of sociocultural facilities. Recommendations from four working groups touched four areas: the needs and desires of the population and the government's sociocultural policy; the role of the local authorities in the sociocultural policy; the relationship between private industry and the government's sociocultural policy; and popular culture and the sociocultural policy. Appendices list participants and summarize the discussion in the four working groups. A related document is SO 006 640. (Author/KSM)
