CRISIS AS A TIME FOR CULTURE, BY CHARLES LANDRY
The current situation poses massive challenges to all of us. The cultural and creative sector is no exception. In this Webinar, guided by Charles Landry, we intend to debate and deepen the role of culture and creativity in the crisis. Does it have a special role to perform in helping to create a more positive outcome of the crisis? Does it push us towards new ways of making and producing culture? Does the digital alternative provide democratic and human centred access to culture? Is there a silver lining to the crisis? If so, how?
After a very brief reminder of the impact of the crisis on culture, Charles Landry will reassemble the bigger argument for culture by focusing on:
- Culture & the 4th pillar of sustainability
- Culture & resilient places
- Culture & the psychological/mental impact of the crisis
- Culture in a time of social distancing
Finally, we will focus on prospects for culture now, in 1 or 2 years and the longer horizon
