Summary/Abstract: Older people are often insufficiently involved in the community’s life and participate to a limited extent in cultural activities for various reasons. These reasons may be geographical isolation, unfavorable financial opportunities, disability, etc. Lack of awareness of the need to involve generation 65+ in cultural education further adversely affects the availability of cultural content intended for them. Increased access to such content contributes to their quality of life, activation, and greater inclusion in society. Social inclusion is an essential element of quality of life and dignified aging. It permeates different segments of life and includes different dimensions and layers. One of its main characteristics is that it is changing. Older age brings with it the problem of adapting to everyday life. The involvement of the elderly population in cultural content is significant, both for the mentioned population and for the local community. This chapter will present the results of a survey conducted among the elderly population of Osijek - Baranja County on their involvement in cultural content and culture perception.
