The paper deals with the topic of collaborative protocols of the Independent Culture of Platforms in the City of Zagreb, where qualitative research has been conducted with representatives of member organizations of these independent platforms. The whole work thesis is based on Becker's theory of „The Art World“, which adds to Castells' meaning on networks and networking, and rests on the fact that artistic and cultural activities are a collection of activities that are created by the collective work of more stakeholders. Thus the aim of the research was to examine the dynamics of the platform as a form of network, their creation and importance of development of independent culture in Zagreb. The sample encompassed fifteen participants, actors of civil society associations that are members of three major platforms operating within the city of Zagreb. In addition to the review of many theoreticians, a survey best describes "situational" and "networking caused by societal need. The social context in which platforms arise are most determined by their dynamics and form, resulting in cross-linking already informally cross-linked, advocacy actions, with an aspiration to influence public issues. Difficulties arise in maintaining stable financing and relations with the state and the media, while the positive side of acting through the platforms can be seen in in the common spirit, co-operation with other members of the profession and the positive perception of the role of the platform by its organization members. Possibilities that would further enhance network sustainability are closer relations with the media about membership, creating self-financing content and collaboration with institutions. The paper also contains the potential of civil society to adopt certain guidelines that could be used by small town associations and also creates a potential basis for some further research.
