Vern av historiske fartøy i Norge

Vitenskapelig sammendrag


As a civic engagement with resident involvement, volunteering is socially valued and publicly recognised. As the interaction between private and public networks develops, social capital is created with collective and economic benefits.
The current focus on civic engagement-related volunteerism in Norway has effected a rise in complementary private initiatives and public funding specifically with regard to the preservation of historic vessels. Volunteers for this program are primarily men aged over 50 years who spend significant amounts of leisure time in municipalities along the coast, fjords and lakes of Norway.
Despite the historical significance of such volunteering, the social capital that is gained, and the substantial funding that is provided by the Directorate for Cultural Heritage, no study has mapped the impact or outcome of these efforts over the past 20 years.

Objective: The primary objective was to study the scope of formal voluntary ship preservation work in Norway.

The study aims to map volunteers in this program, the breadth of their efforts and their motivations.

Metode

Design: All vessels that were funded by the Directorate in 2009, for which empirical data were generated using quantitative and qualitative methods, were included.

Civic engagement in historic ship preservation in Norway

Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag

Historic ships are seen as an important part of Norway’s cultural heritage, which is expressed through substantial annual government funding. This funding finances preservation not only of docking and repairs at commercial shipyards, but also encourages and motivates volunteer activity by sponsoring parts and materials.  Experience from the field shows that the volunteers’ participation is crucial to the outcome in ship preservation. Nevertheless, little is known about the scope and the impact volunteer activity has on the volunteers and their proximate environment. Within a cultural analysis approach, inspired by Foucault’s discourse analysis and the phenomena of social capital described by Bourdieu, the project aims to describe the Norwegian historic ship preservation “fartyvern” as a cultural praxis. Central in this study is the Norwegian term “dugnad“, characterized by its strong collective motivation aspect, the feeling of fellowship and the focus on solving community tasks.

            To describe the scope, 90 ships which received funding from the Directorate of Cultural Heritage in 2009 and 81 key informants were included in a survey. To describe the impact of volunteering and cultural praxis, semi-structured interviews with 14 active volunteers were performed and analysed based on interpretation. Quantitative data were also collected.

The quantitative part of the study shows that gender (men), age (elderly) and a strong relationship with the region and/or the specific ship appear to be highly relevant and that the volunteers’ efforts aggregate annually approximately 5.5 million euros in unpaid work. Results from the qualitative part show that volunteering in a context of skilled, group-bonded, culturally prestigious activity adds considerably to social capital among elderly men in Norway.

The study concludes that volunteering in historic ship preservation can be seen as an important component of social capital, especially for elderly men. This gender-specific engagement of older adults is returning high benefits both to participants and society, and this study adds knowledge to Norway’s cultural heritage as well as to the public health sector.
