Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project focuses on the music venue Stengade at Nørrebro, Copenhagen. The venue has a chequered past, and was closed in 2009 due to increasing debt and difficulties meeting requirements made by the Copenhagen Municipality who finance the running of the venue. Stengade reopened in September 2010, once again with subsidies from the municipality, and now with new rigorous management-demands. The venue has only one paid employee and the rest of the staff are volunteers. The fundamental basis of this project is the experience economy described by Jantzen (2006;2007), Bærenholdt & Sundbo (2007) amongst others. By analysing the new demands made by the municipality, the history of Stengade, the organizational structure and thereafter the volunteers' affiliation, we will be able to analyse their perception of values, as well as their motivation. We will draw attention to the correlation between these elements to explore the optimisation prospects for Stengade. The theoretical basis for this is Bruno Frey and his theory about prevention of “crowding out” intrinsic motivation which is followed up with theory about values and how to use them, by Ole Thyssen. Our empirical data is collected through a questionnaire survey and qualitative interviews.
