High and Low Culture

Dividing culture up into high and low culture!

The Elite (better educated, with more money and power) tend to have.... A distinct culture from the masses.
Shakespeare, opera, sophisticated restaurants and arty French films are the types of things that are? Associated with HIGH CULTURE.
The masses enjoy Low culture e.g.? Soap operas reality TV, musicals, fast food and Hollywood films
High culture is generally considered more difficult to appreciate and .... The audience is seen as educated and having a good taste
Aspects of high culture are seen as..... Good for society, though they don't make much money compared to a lot of low culture, so the government often subsides them.
A lot of funding for high culture has come from a low culture source. some customers have been hostile to the idea. That the lottery is used to pay for 'arty' dance and theatre companies. They suggest its elitist culture-most lottery punters wouldn't get to see it and probably wouldn't like if they did.
