This master thesis investigates perceptions of cultural values and perceptions of the problem that culture can solve in the Danish Arts on prescription project: Kultur på recept. Based on the investigations of these matters the thesis discusses how these perceptions can influence the use of culture in the Danish project Kultur på recept. The analysis investegating the perceptions of values unfolds on different levels of the project: The political, operational and participating level.
The analysis of the political level is based on policy documents, while the analysis of the remaining two levels unfolds based on interviews with actors representing these levels. The thesis uses John Holden’s intrinsic, instrumental and institutional value to form criterias that help articulate the perceptions of value. During the analysis a fourth value is formed: an individual instrumental purpose. This value stands as opposite to Holden's community based instrumental value
Carol Bacchis WPR-method is used to discuss the perception of the problem from a political point. The investigation shows a percepted problem that sees the project as a tool to create a model that includes cultural activities in rehabilitation programs for citizens that suffer from anxiety, depression or stress. The thesis points out, that this perception of the problem can be connected to the community based instrumental
perception of cultural value. The thesis stresses that the perceptions that currently occur in the project can cause a one-sided perception of the value of culture in the project. This perception can lead to a use of
culture that only favours one perception of the cultural value. In this case other perceptions of cultural values might be discarded and have an influence on the outcome of the project Kultur på recept and future similar projects.
