In this study we evalute the sense of community, psychological empowerment, and community participation of 120 workers of performing arts organizations in Andalusia. By means of three concurrent regression models we show that the sense of community and psychological empowerment are strongly related, while social participation is not significantly associated to the other two processes. Cluster analysis based on the three dimensions of interest classify participants in three different groups. In half of the participants a positive, mutual association between participation, empowerment, and a sense of community is observed. In addition, we have documented a passive profile, with low levels of participation, and a paradoxical profile, in which social participation seems to occur regardless of involvement in the organization of reference. The three profiles differ in commitment to the organization and evaluation of labor issues. The positive profile is also more likely to occur in smaller organizations. Finally, we discuss the relationship between the organizational dynamics of the performing arts groups and their potential to be involved in the community.
