The aIm of the surveys

is in Sept 2016 - Jan 2017 to map the core competences of culture volunteers in sparsely populated areas and present the results with guidelines for the essential curricula and course frames for future courses.


Survey methodology

In each country select and analyse 2-4 examples of best practise in communities in sparsely populated areas, where voluntary culture associations and their volunteers make a difference.



Use questionnaires or interviews (or both) with the selected volunteers, leaders of the voluntary associations and other stakeholders in the local communities to deduce the essential competences for successful culture work.
