Policies for Culture presents TV film 'Culture Rocks the City' & Guide to Citizen Participation
The project aimed to promote active citizenship, inclusive decision-making and participative democracy across cities of the old and new (future) European Union. Methods and impact of 'participative' local cultural policy-making for citizens were studied and discussed in-depth. Methods and approaches tested in Policies for Culture as well as the outcome of its numerous SEE action projects realised over the past years featured centrally in this project.

The results showcasing practice and theory of participative policymaking processes across Europe are now available for practitioners and the broader European TV public:

TV documentary 'Culture Rocks the City':
Filmed in Barcelona, Lille, Timisoara and Zagreb, 'Culture Rocks the City' shows how culture can radically change the image of European cities. Comparing experiences of cultural activism between Eastern and Western Europe, SEE TV explores how culture can become a powerful tool of both economic development and citizenship.

This 26 documentary film will be screened by numerous local and national TV broadcasters across SEE and Europe. The full 26 minutes can also be watched as videostream by visiting the website of SEE TV Exchanges, Brussels.

Guide to Citizen Participation in Local Cultural Policy Development for European Cities
In this book two renown Policies for Culture experts, Jordi Pascual i Ruiz and Sanjin Dragojevic explore the conceptual framework and the theories behind citizen participation in local cultural policy development and the mechanisms of how participation can be realized on city level.
