SUB – Riksförbundet För Subkultur is a national Swedish cultural organization. SUB wants to increase the interest in and knowledge of various subcultures. SUB’s origin lies in cultural expressions from genres like synth, goth, darkwave, wave, industry, metal etc.
Over the years, SUB has developed to accommodate a wider range of activities, expressions, genres and cultural forms from steampunk and cosplay to accessibility issues. SUB takes hold in the subcultures such as popular movements, pannational popular movements, where all cultural forms are included, not just music. Thus, dance, art, photography, film, design, etc. are important parts of the union.
By joining SUB, SJPA will be able to influence national cultural policies, establish co-operations with organizations similar to SJPA etc.
