Young people and culture


That ‘arts and culture’ as a term does not resonates with young people or is used by them to describe the activities that they engage with (see this recent post) was also found in this ethnographic study by A New Direction. 

The study is a few years old and was done with young Londoners, but I found some of the findings about how they define culture, the role of friends, life stages and what happens underneath rational barriers really useful to generally understand young people’s engagement with culture better and still relevant today.
