Cultural Policy in Poland. Studies and Documents on Cultural Policies.
Balicki, Stanislaw Witold; And Others
A survey of cultural policy in Poland, prepared for UNESCO, is one of a series showing how cultural policies are planned and implemented in member states. The dual traditions of the ready assimilation of European elements into Polish culture and Poland's determination to maintain a national identity throughout 123 years of partition are presented in an introduction. The principles upon which cultural policy is now based and the social structure and forces behind the development of culture are described, providing a background for discussion of the role of the masses as creators and recipients of culture and the use of culture as a means of innovation. School education, culture centers, education in the arts, the socio-cultural movement, cultural regionalism, the artist's new social status, government aid of creative work, books and libraries, the performing arts, and the protection of monuments are some of the topics analyzed. The concluding chapter summarizes contacts and cooperation of Polish culture throughout the world. (Author/KSM)
