The paper presents the results of a research dealing with the independent cultural scene of the
city of Zadar, whereby the emphasis was placed on the spatial aspects of independent culture’s
functioning. The continuing efforts of the scene’s actors to achieve their right to space, and
thus their right to the city, are perceived from the theoretical perspective of critical urban
theory. In accordance with its cultural, artistic and societal agency, often characterized by activist
and progressive practices, the independent cultural scene is perceived as a specific type
of civil urban actors. Focusing on the perspectives of the scene’s representatives, the purpose
of the research was to gain an insight into various aspects of the struggle to achieve the right
to the space of functioning. The research employed a qualitative approach in the form of
semi-structured interviews and included twenty-one interlocutors. Based on the data coding
process, which included the descriptive, thematic and analytical level, the research results were
organized into three thematic units: space as a usable resource, space as a market resource and
the role of public policies. The results indicate that the spatial problematic of independent
culture delineates broader mechanisms of the relation towards spatial resources and space as a
public good, thus further confirming its societal relevance.
