The year 2020 has been a uniquely challenging one for the creative industry.
Alongside tourism, the cultural and creative sectors have been among the worst affected worldwide, with cultural and creative pursuits severely curtailed in the wake of the
coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic that swept across the globe.
Concerts have been canceled or postponed, art galleries closed, and open-air spaces in which significant portions of the creative trade usually take place now lie dormant and
As individuals involved in cultural and creative enterprises face mounting professional uncertainty, severe loss of income and livelihoods, and insufficiencies of social and economic protections more readily afforded to workers in other sectors, it bears asking what the next evolutionary step is to ensure their survival in a post-COVID-19 landscape.
In this discussion, we speak to three different stakeholders in the cultural and creative industries who share practical and t experiences on how they are still managing to remain relevant during the pandemic. They share what strategies they have employed during these unprecedented times and what opportunities they see in the sector post-pandemic.
