The Gyroscope project was launched as there was a need to solve instability problems when using spatial resources of all non-institutional actors in culture, namely its purpose was to develop a civil and public partnership in the management of the premises of Filodrammatica, Youth Cultural Centre “Palach” and the Croatian Cultural Centre Sušak. This partnership focuses on the establishment of joint management of these premises, which includes the development of a management model, the establishment of procedures for including all cultural stakeholders in the city and increased citizen participation in cultural activities, including their programming. The project contributes to the development of capacities of civil society organizations and public administration for participatory governance, to the strengthening of social dialogue with the aim of achieving better management and citizen inclusion in public resources management.
During the project several educational programmes and activities will be realised that include workshops, lectures, cultural and artistic productions and education, and the establishment of the first Rijeka community radio “Radio Roža”.
