The presence of big number cultural workers, institutions, individuals, civil organizations from Struga contributed to a fruitful debate, where the participatory approach in strategy building and the significant share and focus of the independent scene in the document itself was positively assessed; careful and essential implementation of the strategy was suggested, and it was appealed for serious advocacy by the Ministry of Culture – for the development of cultural life in Struga and for the affirmation and promotion of the UNESCO status of the region.
