Culture for all? – Dutch experiences from the Stockholm cultural sector

Stockholm is famous for its broad and accessible cultural sector where entrance fees of many museums are free of charge and ticket prices for cultural events such as concerts are relatively low. But there is also an ongoing discussion about how free the rather state-driven cultural sector is and what effect the allocation of subsidies has.

Also in the Netherlands, the cultural sector has been a topic of discussion lately. Since the financial crisis in 2008, there have been made severe subsidy cuts. Culture should be accessible for all people (so called low culture), instead of merely for the elite (so called high culture). During changing times with questions about identity and populism, culture can be something that brings people together.

How has Stockholm’s cultural sector been build up and is culture accessible for all here? Is the current model future-proof? What can the cultural sector in the Netherlands learn from Stockholm, or the other way round? What do Dutch cultural professionals think of this, how do they experience the Stockholm cultural sector? 

Join us in the discussion about possible future solutions and ideas to improve the cultural sector in general!


  • Speaker: Torbjörn Elensky, writer and critic
  • Panel discussion: Dutch cultural professionals (to be announced)
  • Wrap-up discussion with the audience
  • Network mingle
