Att skapa en upplevelseindustri
2011 (Swedish)In: Nordisk kulturpolitisk tidskrift, ISSN 1403-3216, E-ISSN 2000-8325, no 1-2, 71-99 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In recent years the notion that culture can be used as an instrument for economic growth has gained foothold in Sweden and Swedish cultural policy. In order to understand this development we need to study the organizations that have promoted ideas about the economic potential of cultural activities. In this article I have focused on one such organization, namely the Swedish Knowledge foundation, which during the time period of 2000-2009 invested SEK 99 million in the Swedish experience industry. The article investigates why the Knowledge foundation decided to make this investment and how they transformed the idea that cultural activities have a potential for economic growth into practice. Using translation theory and an organizational institutional perspective the study shows that the Swedish Knowledge foundation chose to invest in the experience industry because similar investments had been made in other countries such as the United Kingdom. However, the Knowledge foundation’s investment represented no copy of the international models but was translated to fit the new Swedish context.
