In ours research project we are examining various forms of cultural and social animation of young people growing up in socio-economically disadvantaged communities on example on The Lower Town of Gdansk. In the paper we will show some results of ours research project and reflect on backgroung of creating some alternative education programmes: who speaks, to whom, why, who gives whom the right to speak? Assuming that improving the quality of life, on the other hand, not only concerns aesthetic and economic development, but also mental change of inhabitants, we will present an empirical study exploring the questions about tensions between local society, social and cultural organizations and investor’s interests in revitalization area, conflicting realities and intentions of different agents of change. In this paper we will try to reconstruct the ideas of socio-cultural work in this area from the time of critical artists actions that chose desolate and demolished places for their activity in nineties till present-day city politics supported transformation of the Lower Town throught cooperating in the field of revitalization. We will rather be reconstructing intensions, programme guidelines and methodology, approaches and strategies of some organizations and institutions than analysing particular projects. The study focuses on some structural changes detected at the district caused by the expansion of informal education movement. It seem to have a significance for the understanding of the educational issue within a few years the number of alternative educators has grown rapidly in the district as the same time as attention of property developers. In that case the main research question is: what kind of societal agencies can provide skills necessary to overcoming exclusion and participate in civic society in variable conditions of life?
The main theoretical framework for the analysis are discourse theory, critical pedagogy of space, post-colonial theory, cultural and social capital studies. Ours research derives of theories of informal and civic education, hidden curriculum and wider discussion of citizenship as a concept.
