Children's Right To Culture

Stockholm city has a goal that every child in Stockholm should meet professional culture of the highest quality. It wants to offer culture for children, culture with children, and culture by children. Stockholm provides many opportunities for school kids to take part in the cultural life, but there are still too few who take the offers that are provided.
This meeting between the kids and the culture producers must be easier to access. How can Stockholm city's culture department be more efficient in reaching all school children, and not just those with the most engaged parents and teachers?

Curriculum Blueprints for Culture

Sample curriculums are created every year for each grade/subject level with various cultural activities (dance, music, theater, visual arts) injected into them.

Curriculums Blueprints are created by teachers working in concert with performance groups

Curriculums Blueprints are offered online (through Kulan?)

Teachers can download a Curriculums Blueprint and modify it, can also upload the modified version

Curriculums Blueprints will keep track of authors (teachers, performance groups, etc). Modified Blueprints will keep track of source (or inspiration) and who edited

Curriculums Blueprints would be presented as a snapshot with the following information
-Authors, Inspired By, Last Modified By
-Ratings/Reviews (includes students, teachers, admins, performance groups?). Users of the Curriculums Blueprints are required to submit a rating in the final month of the school year.
-Measurements/Statistics (average exam scores for students on this curriculum, average grade point for students on this curriculum)

End of school year annual event to reward the most successful curriculum or the year (based on ratings)
-Honor the curriculum creator(s)
-Honor the teachers/students/performance groups that use the curriculum

Golden Ticket

Teachers can purchase a ticket to cultural events worth 100kr for their students for 50kr with her class budget. The students from grades 7 and over can choose a performance from a list on the website (printed on the ticket). The teacher can choose a reporting method from either suggestions provided with instructions from Kulan or their own ideas. The tickets are collected by the performers and "cashed in" with Kulan.
The benefit of this idea is that it shifts responsibility from the teacher (who is already stressed with responsibilities) to the older student to choose a cultural event. Also it simplifies payment, scheduling and reimbursement

Teachers finding motivations for why to take students to cultural events


Logic behind ideas:

Teacher needs to motivate and justify cultural events facing:
- Sceptical students
- Parents who doesn’t see the value of culture in schools and want their kids to have good grades and focus on science
- Other teachers that need to adjust their schedule in order for the event to take place
- To him/herself: how does the teacher value short-term goals of exams etc. VERSUS long-term goals of creating future citizens and what role does the teacher see in culture for this? (Do cultural activities improve school performance and grades/ is it valuable for the creation of the future citizen)

In order to justify why the teacher should take the students to a cultural events he/she needs to:
- Create trust between him/herself and students and parents
- Be well informed about the content and quality of activities
- Be confident with him/her own ability to organize an activity
- Feel confident that the students will enjoy the activity (especially for those who have no previous experience of such activities!)

Kulan improvements

Support teachers finding activities by providing ratings and reviews for each culture activities… allow the students the opportunity to write individual reviews for the activities they go to (maybe the teacher can have it as an assignment), add a ranking system to the review (helpful/not helpful ).

Support teachers by simplifying the payment process… maybe Arbetsgrupp can pay 100% to the performers then bill school for the amount after applying the subsidy (get better data on the number of students who attended)

Support teachers by making the booking process simpler... rather than registering and being manually approved to become a Booker use the personal number and cross-reference if it's a teacher, after school person, culture admin, etc. Then can get more data (which teachers or after school program, what grade levels)

Afterschool gatherings - the new leasure trend among children

I believe that the leisure time could be the key. If every child got a culture check from the age of 10 years when the community and schools usually cut the investments in the schools every day (about two thirds) so they do not have resources to have adults or teach. If we connect the schools leasure time after school with checks each child use in any activity, then all children would have the chance to develop interests and learn together with old and new friends without stress. I am sure Cultural work mediation can bring up culture workers, musicians and so on who would love to teach their passion and at the same time get some extra money. There is also a lot of young people who are good at different sports, dance and so on who would love to feel that they can participate and share their knowledge and get as extra money.

In Malta each child could actually choose any sport or cultural activity after school for around 10 euros for once a week for each activity per term. Different activities in different schools or in other places.
