Summary/Abstract: The authors ponder on the category of engaged ethnographic research, as well as possible areas of using such studies in cultural animation. A clash between the field worker’s social co-existence (field) and the effort of an analytic approach to the described reality (desk), seems to be the crucial issue. To illustrate the matter, the authors present activities undertaken by the lecturers and students, who participated in „Cultural Animation” workshops (in the Polish Culture Institute, UoW), as part of the project „Ostałówek. A common place”.
