Enhancing social capital development throughout cultural events a case study of eastern Poland

Julia Ziółkowska


The aim of the research is to analyse the relationships between cultural events and the creation of social capital. The research is dedicated to small-scale cultural events organized in Eastern Poland. Although literature on festivals and events is vast, little studies are dedicated to the group of festival vendors, their characteristics and the possible relationships that are created among them and with local communities. Through a survey carried out at 7 small-scale events, the study shows that characteristic features of social capital are present among festival vendors. The research revealed that social capital enhanced throughout the selected events has an individual (professional and personal) as well as regional effect. The majority of vendors participating in the study were established in the same region as the events, in consequence this situation may imply positive effects on local development of the voivodships of Eastern Poland.
