overview of the goals and
instruments of cultural development
The goals and instruments of the strategy of cultural development we summarily pre
sented shall be outlined even more briefly below, including their functionality and pur
pose. The strategy of cultural development of the Republic of Croatia has one all encom
passing or overall, one general (cultural and political) and ten particular goals. Each of
these goals is linked to a series of instruments that have been proposed as optimal at this
point in time (for propelling development towards the goal). Given the very abstract
elaboration in this part, the instruments can be perceived as goals on a somewhat less
abstract level. The all encompassing or overall goal is axiomatically above the particular
goals, so from that aspect the latter can be considered instruments. In the same formal
sense, particular goals (sub systems) of cultural policy are instruments for achieving the
general goal of cultural policy. In other words, it is as follows:
Overall strategic goal culturally sustainable development.
Instruments: cultural policy; art and cultural industries; cultural heritage; cultural rela
tions; co operation with other sectors.
General goal of cultural policy selecting and linking instruments of development that
warrant growth and the developmental use of cultural capital as well as the shaping of
Croatia s cultural landscape.
Instruments: legislation; financing; management; participation; education; employ
The goal of developing art and cultural industries merging culture as a goal and cul
ture as a means in the process of which quality works would enjoy wide popularity.
Instruments: (approximate description of numerical values on the scale): reduced pro
duction of art for art s sake and increased cultural industries production; popularization
of cultural public property in the same manner as commercial goods; equal share of state
subsidies and private investments; culture becoming more a production than a consump
tion activity; and decreased import and increased export of cultural goods.
The goal of developing cultural heritage continuation in new forms of contemporane
ity and sustainable development.
