Abstract: This study was done to investigate the moderating effect of growth mindset on the mediating effect of individual cultural capacity on relationship between local culture status and cultural participation. The subjects of this study were 229 employees of 25 workplaces in Daejeon, 2 metropolitan cities and the Chungnam province. The collected data were analyzed using correlation analysis, frequency analysis, and moderating mediation effect by SPSS and SPSS PROCESS macro. The main results are as follows. Local culture status, cultural capacity and cultural participation showed a significant positive correlation. However, growth mindset showed an otherwise negative correlation with local culture status, and did not show a significant correlation with cultural participation. Second, local culture status had a statistically significant effect on cultural capacity, and cultural capacity had a statistically significant effect on cultural participation. Therefore, the indirect effect of cultural capacity was verified. Third, the effect of moderated mediation on a path from local culture status to cultural participation via cultural capacity, was considered to be significant in low and middle groups of growth mindset. Based on the results of this study, we discussed policy measures to encourage active participation of local residents.
