Title Den sociale bevægelse i Foreningen Retro - Frivillighedens betydning for kulturelle produktioner

English abstract
This thesis intends to research the association by the name of Retro and its cultural productions in order to identify social movement dimensions of Retro, and the impact it can have on society today. The concept of volunteerism will be unfolded focusing on the meaning it can add to the cultural productions. Research has been made claiming that early social movements is of great importance to democracy as we know it, and social movements today strive to challenge the dominating political culture. Furthermore, some claim that volunteerism is the very foundation on which we build our welfare society. According to several social scientists, (Flacks, 1988; Marcuse, 1969; Eyerman & Jamison, 1998; Crossley, 2002) social movements can bring about change in society through the cultural actions that take place in them, more than the political actions. Throughout the thesis I argue, that the social dimension and community of Retro which the cultural productions help create, is of big importance not only to the volunteer but also to the society in general. This provides attention to a desired social behaviour where individuals think about others than themselves – a quality that is crucial for the future existence of the welfare state.
