A new survey found that 52% of respondents said that they attended cultural events less often now than before the COVID pandemic started two years ago.

A survey conducted by Norstar, for Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK), has highlighted how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the habits of Norwegians. 52% of respondents said that they attend fewer cultural events, such as watching a film, going to the theater, or attending a concert.

Some 41% of respondents said their habits had not been affected by the pandemic whilst 4% of respondents said that they now attend more cultural events than they ever have.

Unlike in other countries, there appears to be no pent-up demand for cultural events after society re-opened, Bård Kleppe, senior researcher at Telemark Research told NRK. He also felt that people’s habits had indeed been changed by the pandemic.

Cultural life in Norway has been floundering as there has been sluggish demand for cultural events since Norwegian society reopened from pandemic infection restrictions earlier this year.
