The INVENT Smartphone Study – gain insight into your weekly cultural participation!

What is this study about?
The INVENT Smartphone Study is about how people come into contact with culture in their daily life, and how they experience it. Culture is broadly defined and can be things like: music, television, books, food, places to go out, creative hobby’s, sport, fashion, politics, games, famous persons, et cetera. We are interested in learning more about people’s everyday cultural activities and how these impact wellbeing and social cohesion.

How will it work?
We would like to send you short questionnaires up to 4 times a day for a period of a week (7 days) via your smartphone.  The questions you will receive are very short (will take roughly 1 minute to fill out). The questions will be about your mood at that moment and about activities or conversations related to culture that you might have taken part in during that timeframe.

Download the app and sign up for the study using the code t39z3 and the app’s notification system will take care of the rest.
