The Cultural Experience - a factor of growth? : a case study of the festival Putte i Parken in Karlstad (English)
Abstract [en]

As well as other politic fields, the cultural politics adapt to changes in society. The development in society has brought attention to the interaction between the cultural field and the economic field. One of the main goals within Swedish Cultural Policies today is the development of cultural and creative economics. Politicians and researchers claim that culture can be a significant part in economic growth in cities and making a place attractive to live in.

I became interested in the discussion around the cultural experience as a factor of economic growth when I participated in a seminar at Karlstad CCC during Kulturparlamentet 2012. When I then started working at the music festival Putte i Parken during the spring of 2013 I thought about making this study.

The main aim is to investigate in which way Putte i Parken can be a factor of growth and a factor of making Karlstad an attractive place to live in by analyzing documents, reports and literature in a qualitative way of working. The main findings in this case study is that Putte i Parken may be a factor of growth but that a city needs a more extensive cultural life in order to reach economic growth in that extent that is intended when discussing this subject of matter.
