The Cultural Strategy for Harghita County includes recommendations for the 2013–2020 period. The main idea of the strategy is how endogenous cultural resources can be used to promote development.

The documentation is available in Hungarian and in Romanian version.

Within the framework of our annual program entitled “Knowledge management“ we invite the cultural actors of the county to participate in a meeting yearly where we debate current issues in the cultural life of the rural communities.

The Institution regularly organizes or co-organizes cultural consultations, round table conversations and academic conferences, in association with various academic institutions around the region. The main topics include regional development based on cultural facilities, the future of Seklerland, cultural heritage.

Our institution offers methodological support by organizing local programs.

Our colleagues are open to assure consultancy in their professional field for those who would like to organize any kind of cultural, educational or artistic event in their community.

The 80-hour accredited photography course includes theory and mostly practice; its target group is both beginners and experienced photographers. The only one condition to participate is to own a camera.

The teachers are professional photographers of national and international reputation: Gyula Ádám, Előd Erdély Bálint, Attila Molnár, Nándor Veres.

The main topics of the course include:

History of photography, history of photography in Transylvania, techniques, genres of photography, event photography, photo shooting in studio with models and object, photo processing with special softwares, image aesthetic analysis.

During the ten years from 2009 until 2018, there were 15 groups with 220 people taking part in the course. The participants gained the basic skills, knowledge and the practice to enter the labor market as photographers.

Some of them have improved in their hobby, now taking photos more consciously and having more satisfaction in it.
