The Value of Arts for Social Cohesion in Saskatchewan
This report presents the results of a random-sample telephone survey of the Saskatchewan population, which examined public perception of the arts and their value to our province. This study’s goal was to produce empirical data on the value of arts at the community level—something that few studies have attempted. Drawing on concepts of cultural ecology and social capital, we examine public perceptions of the arts within Saskatchewan’s urban and rural contexts.
