Canning House brings together a panel of leading cultural sector figures for a conversation on the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic across literature, art, film and more, and what governments and organisations are doing to mitigate its effects.
Culture and the Covid Crisis
Around the world, the Covid-19 pandemic has profoundly affected the cultural sector, with Latin America as no exception. Many galleries, museums, theatres and cinemas remain closed, while the region’s independent artists have received limited governmental aid.
Our panel will discuss policies adopted by Latin American governments to support cultural activities, and other initiatives which have emerged to mitigate the pandemic’s negative impacts on the sector.
- How should governments model their cultural policy?
- Which non-governmental initiatives have proven most effective?
- Are there alternatives to support the region’s cultural sector?
