Is culture for all or only for the privileged? : A study of the staff responsible for children’s culture and the staff’s thoughts on the cultural range offered youth in north-east Scania, a part of southern Sweden (English)
Abstract [en]

This Master’s thesis explores the staff responsible for children’s culture in the south of Sweden, in north-east Scania. This thesis seeks to answer the following questions: What kind of culture is offered to children in their spare time? Can children influence culture in the investigated region, and do the people in charge listen to the children’s ideas? How are children in the region informed about cultural events? In my research I used enquiries and worked with the investigation program Query & Report to collect the material. The study consists of the staff, i.e. six people responsible for the children’s culture. As my theoretical framework I used the work of Pierre Bourdieu who made many successful studies about people and culture. I also compared the results in my study to the literature and earlier studies on the subject of children’s culture, presented in the study. It’s my thesis that children have a right to culture and to influence its selection. Obviously not everyone chooses to practise that right. There is a difference between children with an interest in culture and those who don’t have one. The staff responsible for children’s culture tries in their work to reach as many children as possible. In their work they collaborate with schools, libraries, children and youth groups with the intention to provide a variety of cultural options in the region. I found that the library has an important role, because they offer free literature and culture for everyone in the society. I also found that the staff responsible for children’s culture in north- east of Scania try to reach the children using co-workers’. Together they provide for the culture regarding children and create possibilities for children to attend to culture both in school and on the youth’s spare time.
