The Cultural Vitality of Cities in Romania – 2018 edition



Societies are in a continuous process of transformation, and this can be observed in concern with each of the basic social institutions, such as: politics, economy, religion, family and education.

The definition of cultural vitality underpinning this report is the one used in the study Cultural Vitality in Communities: Interpretation and Indicators. The authors of the study conceptualise cultural vitality as „as evidence of creating, disseminating, validating, and supporting arts and culture as a dimension of everyday life in communities”. From the viewpoint of this definition, cultural vitality is divided into three dimensions: presence, participation and support.
