Abstract
This paper is about the values within the volunteering work in conjunction with the ASSITEJ Performing Arts Festival and World Congress 2011.

This paper is about the values within the volunteering work in conjunction with the ASSITEJ Performing Arts Festival and World Congress 2011. Using a questionnaire method amongst the volunteers in Malmoe, I have collected 93 answers on the reasons to why they became volunteers. As a theoretical framework I use Pierre Bourdieu’s declaration of symbolic, social and cultural capital to catch the non-economical values within volunteer labour. But while looking for values in a non-profit context, it is hard not to notice the hidden economical values. The previous research in the field of volunteer values shows this by being divided in to two perspectives, one focusing on the economical values within volunteer labour and one on the sociological values amongst volunteers and non-volunteers. According to Bourdieu, social capital is able to transform into an economical ditto and this is also found to be one of the motivations for the volunteers.

The values that are found in the volunteers’ answers to the questionnaire are otherwise mainly symbolic, in the form of social and cultural values. For example is “connections” a sort of social value and “knowledge” a cultural value. The values presented by the volunteers are significant for ASSITEJ as an organization. Not only do the help to fulfil the festivals goals, but the also live up to the visions presented by the organization. (Less)
