Cultural Climate Barometer
HOW TO JUDGE THE CULTURAL CLIMATE IN A COUNTRY?
What are the conditions for the vitality of cultural life in a country? What are the main characteristics of its environment? Which are the strengths and the weaknesses? (And yes, the opportunities and threats...) What kind of cultural policy model prevails?
The instrument has been evolving in several steps since the first pilot round in the autumn of 2013. Beyond the problematic factors for the vitality of culture, the current expanded version also asks about the accommodating, positive aspects that affect the cultural ecosystem. The report on the 2014 edition tells more about the origins of the project.
Feel free to apply the Cultural Climate Barometer to judge the climate in your cultural ecosystem, in the full original version of the survey or in eventual adaptations. Kindly refer to the Budapest Observatory and keep us informed.
