Publication on "Cultural Participation and Well-being"

Culture plays an important role in constructing and consolidating the bases for social cohesion and inclusion and for individual and collective wellbeing. The fourth issue of the Dossier from the Social Observatory of "la Caixa" analyses the factors that determine the cultural participation of citizens and reflects on how to guarantee equal conditions for such participation.

This monograph presents indicators, an interview, a book review and original research based on official statistics in Spain and Europe. It contains data and arguments on the social and the economic value of cultural assets that can enable and strengthen the cultural sector's advocacy actions.

The Social Observatory of “la Caixa” is an initiative to foster evidence based research and social science.
