Research digest: Lifelong cultural engagement

How may the value and impact of engaging with culture evolve across someone’s lifetime? Are our cultural tastes set in childhood? Or is there scope for our behaviours to change? If so, what can affect these shifts?

This research digest brings together studies and research from different disciplines and practices that provide insight into how regular and sustained cultural engagement can have an impact on people’s lives.
