Cultural consumption and practises of children aged 6 -14 in Catalonia
In 2008, the Ministry of Culture and the Media of Catalonia carried out, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and the Statistical Institute, the Survey of the Cultural Consumption and Practices of Children, which has been the first attempt, not only within Catalonia, but also within Spain, to undertake a systematic and panoramic analysis of the cultural habits of young people between 6 and 14 years old, asking series of questions in key areas of cultural activity, including museums, heritage, libraries, archives, reading, visual arts, performing arts, music and concerts, radio and television, computers, videogames, the Internet and mobile phones. Using this empirical data, this article will yield a understanding of the role of young people in processes of cultural consumption through the discussion of three main ideas: 1) Does gender still have effect on cultural habits, or are those traditional differences becoming to erode? 2) Socialization. How and to what extent does primary socialization and generational transmission contribute to the reproduction of cultural practices? and 3) Is technology a substitute or a complement to traditional cultural activities?
