Abstract

Given the framework of emotional solidarity has never been considered in the context of festivals concerning the relationship between community residents and visitors, the purpose of this paper is twofold: 1) to confirm the factor structure of the emotional solidarity scale—ESS (while examining psychometric properties of the scale) and 2) to examine whether length of residency significantly predicts the degree of emotional solidarity (as measured by the resulting three factors of the ESS) residents experience with visitors to a festival.

Considering residents’ level of emotional solidarity with visitors to a cultural festival

Given the framework of emotional solidarity has never been considered in the context of festivals concerning the relationship between community residents and visitors, the purpose of this paper is twofold: 1) to confirm the factor structure of the emotional solidarity scale—ESS (while examining psychometric properties of the scale) and 2) to examine whether length of residency significantly predicts the degree of emotional solidarity (as measured by the resulting three factors of the ESS) residents experience with visitors to a festival.
