Socio-cultural Animation.
The document consists of papers written by government and educational leaders in nations belonging to the Council of Europe on the theme of sociocultural community development. Sociocultural community development, also called sociocultural animation, is interpreted to include policies which make literature, visual arts, and performing arts available to all people as well as promotion of creativity at grass roots levels. The document is presented in five chapters. Chapter I defines sociocultural community development and reviews concerns explored by various culturally-oriented international conferences in Europe from 1970-77. Chapter II provides an overview of sociocultural community development. Topics discussed include guidelines for cultural policies, the relationship of community development to formal education, and adaptation of community development programs to specific types of housing areas. Chapter III discusses training and status of individuals involved in sociocultural community development. Chapter IV presents a catalog of 200 community development projects in nations belonging to the Council of Europe. The final chapter offers observations on the future of sociocultural development in Europe. (DB)
