  <dc:description>The paper seeks to explore adults’ attitude to cultural awareness and its self-education through theatre arts. Theatre arts present unique way for the development of cultural awareness in the self-education of adults through the provision of the mutual culture space and interactivity, as well as by reavealing the harmony of the world that surrounds us, to perceive environment using all senses, to become a sensitive, considerate, attentive, curious, merciful, balanced and creating person. Quantitative survey of adults executed in Lithuania disclosed increasing attention of people to their cultural erudition, i.e. they indicated at least one way of cultural development. The results also show that cultural erudition development is statistically significantly related to theatre arts: watching performances at the theatre, recreation centres or via means of telecommunication.</dc:description>
