Drop in-culture : A way to increase availability and encourage spontaneous culture practice? (English)
The recent development in society, such as the increased digitalisation, has brought new terms for both production and consumption within the cultural field. One of the main goals within Swedish Cultural Policies today is that everyone should have the same opportunities to practice and participate in cultural activities, with the right to develop their creative abilities. The cultural policies also contain the possibility to encourage spontaneous culture practice. The question is how to reach this goal.
During the spring of 2012 I have been examining the term ’spontankultur’ (spontaneous culture practice) as it appears in the discussion around participation in cultural activities and its connection to creativity. A bid for the development of Drop in-culture is currently in progress in the municipality of Karlstad. The target group is children and young adults and the aim is to make the cultural field available for more people and in that way encourage participation. The implementation of the new ideas will be done by creating free activities that does not require a continued partipication, in contrast to more traditional club activities.
This study also contains a comparison with previous research on spontaneous culture and a insight to how the cultural policies are used in the region Värmland at the moment. The main finding of this study shows that the current bid for developing Drop in-culture in Karlstad could be a good way to start working for increased participation. However, although children and young adults are prioritised in Karlstad, the target group limits the outcome in relation to the goals in national cultural policies that aims for equal possibilities for people of all ages.
