FRAMEWORK FOR CULTURE IN ROMANIA is an online database
at facilitating the fast and free access to and the consultation
of the legal acts relevant for the cultural field, as well as the
consultation of explanatory legal guides for specific key areas.
An ARCult project.
This information and documentation source equally targets individuals
and legal entities working in the cultural field, regardless of
their status and form of organisation (freelancers, NGOs, public
institutions or profit-making companies). However, the individuals
and the nongovernmental organisations, which face a more difficult
access to information and consultancy in this field, represent the
priority beneficiaries of this instrument. Thus, the legal guides
of specific interest for these target groups propose more detailed
information than those relevant for the others.
What does this instrument offer?
LEGAL FRAMEWORK FOR CULTURE IN ROMANIA represents a new instrument,
designed in order to respond to the specific needs of the cultural
actors, which offers:
A general overview on the legal framework addressing and
affecting the cultural sector, by the means of its structuring on cultural fields
and specific topics or mechanisms. For each field it provides a
listing of relevant legal acts, which are available for consultation,
as well as, for certain fields, detailed explanatory legal guides.
The search and online consultation of legal acts relevant
for the cultural sector. The legal acts are available in Romanian
only. The database is not an exhaustive one. It is an instrument
conceived especially for the cultural operators, which includes
only those legal acts which are considered relevant for their activity.
The consultation of explanatory legal guides on certain areas
and topics, in a Questions & Answers format, meant at facilitating
the understanding of the existing legal framework and the answering
to concrete questions and situations that cultural operators are
faced with. The legal guides are available in Romanian and will
be soon available in English as well, in a shorter form.
How to use this database?
The database can be accessed and consulted in two ways:
Consultation of the legislation and the legal guides by field/topic
The tree-built structure of the database, available in the main
page, allows an easy identification and access of all areas
and topics addressed. In the dedicated page of each field or topic
are listed, facilitating their consultation in html format, the
legal acts relevant for the specific field (in Romanian only), as well as, where available, the
explanatory legal guide of the field (available in English as well).
Use of the search engine: searching for specific legal acts
Given the fact that the legal acts are available only in the Romanian
language, the search tool is proposed only in the Romanian version
of the database.
LEGAL FRAMEWORK FOR CULTURE IN ROMANIA is proposed in the framework
of the ARCult programme of the ECUMEST Association. It was launched
with the support of the Arts & Culture regional program of OSI
(through Concept Foundation) and of INDACO Systems.
The database and the legal guides have been developed in cooperation
with a team of legal experts among which Delia Mucica and Ionica
Pirvu. Project manager: Oana Radu. Project coordinator: Marilena
