Svenskarna mest kulturella

93 procent av svenska folket har under senaste året spelat musikinstrument, sjungit i kör eller målat, 87 procent har ägnat sig åt bokläsning och 72 procent varit på bio. Det här är mer än i något annat av de 27 EU-länderna, konstateras i den nyutkomna boken KulturSverige 2009 – Problemanalys och statistik.

- Det är den första svenska kulturstatistiska årsboken på flera år, säger Svante Beckman, professor vid Tema Q och redaktör för boken, som presenteras vid en konferens den 24-25 november, ”KulturSverige nu. Kulturens och kulturpolitikens nya förutsättningar”. Han beskriver konferensen, som har 250 deltagare, som ett nationellt möte mellan kulturbranschen och kulturpolitiskt inriktad forskning.

- Med både boken och konferensen vill vi spegla den forskning som pågår om kulturpolitiken och kulturens villkor.

KulturSverige 2009 innehåller ett 30-tal artiklar om kulturpolitik, skrivna av forskare inom fältet. Kulturens kommersialisering och kultur som utvecklingsmotor är några av många infallsvinklar som belyses. Med hjälp av statistiska indikatorer fångas långsiktiga trender upp, liksom det grova mönstret i dagens situation. I några avsnitt belyses hur ekonomin ser ut på kulturområdet och i ett kapitel presenteras material om svenska folkets kulturvanor.

Internet är det mest expansiva området inom kultur- och mediesektorn, både mätt i de pengar och den tid som hushållen satsar. I åldersgruppen 15-24 år har Internetanvändandet gått förbi TV-tittandet som daglig aktivitet; i genomsnitt ägnar man 110 minuter åt TV-tittande medan Internetanvändning står för hela 128 minuter en genomsnittlig dag.
