Flemish Youth. An investigation on youth cultures, culture consumption and culture consumption in Flanders.

Project Details


The purpose of this project is to map out the youthcultures in Flanders. For this purpose we will describe the relation between attitudes, the values and the norms of youth on the one hand, their livestyle, cultural interests, cultural activities and media-use on the other hand. The first part of this research consists of a quantitative survey, based on a sample of 5000 pupils of the last year of secondary school. After this, we will investigate the relation between, on the one side the distinguished subcultures, and on the other side the social-economic background, the schoolcareer and gender. In a second part, we will go more profoundly into the Flemish youthcultures. This will happen by ways of depth-interviews with youngsters and by an analysis on the used or made cultural products. In this second part, most of our attention goes to the symbols that are used by the different youthcultures.
