Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/konference-proceedingKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskningpeer review

Resumé

The Wadden Sea Festival in Denmark is based on the idea of integrating the coastal environment

in the presentation of contemporary art. Specifically, unique tidal differences are utilized to stage a

range of performances. The Wadden Sea Festival serves a dual purpose of enhancing local

residents' sense of place and identity while also attracting visitors to the region. Furthermore, the

festival is designed to create regional, national and international liaisons between artists and

cultural institutions to improve the cultural attractiveness, hence fostering product and institutional

innovations. The present research recognizes the articulated aims of the festival and investigates

how a cultural event influences participants' quality of life (QOL). The study adopts a twofold

approach to examine organizers' expectations as well as the impacts on participants' short-term

subjective well being. The article sets out to probe how a cultural event may enhance QOL and

identifies possible drivers in the process.
