Based on research into the cultural life of young people today, this book will be of interest to students of culture and society and for those involved in the making and implementation of cultural policy and in the education of the young.
The institutions and practices, genres and terms of high art are currently categories of exclusion more than of inclusion. They have no real connection with most young people or their lives. But there is a symbolic creativity in everyday life, everyday activity and expression - even if it is sometimes invisible, looked down upon or spurned. Young people are all the time expressing or attempting to express something about their actual or potential cultural significance. This is the realm of living common culture. This book, based on research into the cultural life of young people today, will be interesting reading for students of culture and society, for those involved in the making and implementation of cultural policy and in the education of the young, and indeed for anyone concerned about the future of our society.
