INVENT– How Megatrends Change Culture and What Changes They Should Bring To Cultural Policy

  • 17 November 2022
  • 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
  • Virtual IAS

IAS Open Programme Fellows Dr Predrag Cvetičanin & Assistant Professor Željka Zdravković deliver a seminar on their research - 

In this research seminar we will present the Horizon 2020 project ‘European Inventory of Societal Values of Culture as a Basis for Inclusive Cultural Policies in the Globalizing World - INVENT (No. 870691) which is being carried out in nine European countries the Netherlands, Spain, France, Denmark, Finland, Great Britain, Switzerland, Croatia and Serbia from February 2020 until July 2023.

The starting point of the project is that Europe and the world have undergone fundamental changes over the last thirty years – changes related to influences of the mega-trends of globalization, migrations, digitalization and increasing social inequalities - but that cultural policies have not kept pace with these changes. Using a mixed-method research design, we study how European citizens perceive and understand changes which these megatrends have been bringing into their everyday life, everyday culture, and cultural participation, and the implications of these changes for cultural policy.

We will also briefly present the results of two papers based on the survey results: “Do Social Inequalities Influence Different Types of Cultural Practices in the Same Way” and “The Influence of Cultural Capital on the Perception of Globalizing Process in Nine European Countries”.
