This project aims to discover how our participation in cultural and leisure activities has changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. We also want to investigate the importance of such participation for psychological well-being during the pandemic. The project is an anonymous online survey and everyone over 18 years old is welcome to participate. The research is conducted by Karolinska Institutet in Sweden.
If you choose to participate you will be given access to an online survey that contains questions about your personal situation, psychological well-being, leisure interests and social contacts and how these have been effected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We estimate that it will take about 20 minutes to complete the survey. Your replies are anonymous i.e. it is not possible to trace replies to an individual person and participation is completely voluntary. All replies will be collected on a secure server that complies with EU safety regulations.
The results of the study will be used for scientific publications, in the form of statistical results sorted by group. The Centre for Cognition, Culture and Health at Karolinska Institutet will make these publications available on our website kulturellahjarnan.se The principal investigator for this study is Fredrik Ullén (contact us here).
