After the Second World War, great changes took place in the cultural field. The CPY has turned the changes that have taken place in the field of educational and cultural policy into an instrument for achieving ideological goals and spreading one's own political ideas. A significant part of the cultural and artistic life of Bosnia and Herzegovina, northeastern Bosnia, and Tuzla took place through sections of societies that were mainly labeled national, workers', officials, rural and school amateurs. Cultural activities in Bosnia and Herzegovina were partly carried out through national cultural and educational societies, among Bosniaks „Preporod“, among Serbs „Prosvjeta“, and among Croats „Napredak“. In addition to the renewed national societies, cultural and artistic activities were also performed by singing choirs, theater and artistic groups that were founded during the war, and workers' cultural and artistic societies began to be established. One of them is the workers' cultural and artistic association „Mitar Trifunović-Učo“, founded in 1945 in Tuzla. In the first five months, the company „Mitar Trifunović Učo“ gave six performances. During 1946, the workers' cultural and artistic association „Mitar Trifunović-Učo“ had notable performances at performances and concerts. In 1947, this society gave numerous events and participated in various ceremonies, and among others visited the builders of the Šamac-Sarajevo railway, participated in the opening ceremony of the Stupari-Kladanj railway, and had several guest appearances in Banovići, Zenica and Zavidovići, then Tešanj and Teslić. In 1948, the workers' cultural and artistic association „Mitar Trifunović-Učo“ had 39 performances. The beginning of 1948 was a turning point in the work of this society. At the beginning of 1948, the company organized its management, organized better work in all its sections, so that each section got its own manager. In addition, the material conditions were arranged, the necessary inventory, clothes and technical material were procured. In 1949, new and more extensive tasks were set before the society, primarily the establishment and strengthening of the work of all sections, choir, drama, choreography, music, recitation and pioneer sections. In 1950, the workers' cultural and artistic association „Mitar Trifunović-Učo“ was proclaimed the best association of the Tuzla Basin. Sections of the society participated in numerous performances, of which singing and tamburitza at 6, folklore at 3 and theater at 6 performances. The company had four halls and one small room. During 1951, the cultural and artistic association „Mitar Trifunović-Učo“ had great difficulties with the premises. There was a move from the former Workers' Home to the former Croatian Home. As a result, the company did not work for several months. The years 1952 and 1953 were the years of great „Ucina“ successes. The biggest problem in the society was the development of social life in the society and only the revival of the membership, which came only for rehearsals, and then left, not staying in the premises of the society.
