In the strategies of the development of cities and regions, the significance of cultural sector for the sustainable and optimal socio-economic development is emphasized more and more often. The same refers to Poland where in last years the increasing interest in the broadly understood cultural sector in the context of searching new impulses for development from the state and local governments is observed. However, in the strategies of the development of culture besides main actors disseminating a culture, i.e. state and local cultural institutions, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) acting in the field of culture play more and more important role. This study aims at analyzing the spatial impact of NGOs in the field of culture reflects a research direction concerning the changes in cultural services in Poland. This research has been conducted on the example of Toruń Foundation Wszyscy Tworzymy Sztukę (WTS, Everybody Creates Art). Its creators noticing "a great need to bridge a gap between music and visual arts education in the group of children and youth attending comprehensive schools and education in the schools of arts" [www.fundacjawts.pl] have focused their efforts and actions on persons who wish to develop actively their talents but they do not aspire to start education in arts schools. This study have demonstrated that the actions undertaken by single, relatively small NGO in the field of cultural sector may involve not only a city but also neighboring communes. In some small degree the activity of NGO may contribute to strengthen the range of the impact of a city. Functioning this type of organization in the field of cultural sector should be considered not only in the relation to a local community. What is more, considering active presence of NGO in the Internet it should be noted that there can be potentially unlimited range of the dissemination of effects in the context of the activity of the WTS Foundation.
