About this Event

Hosted by the Centre for Cultural Value and presented in association with the British Council, this webinar will present brief findings from recent research into international policy responses to the impact of Covid-19 on the cultural sector.

It will give an overview of different interventions internationally and explore the underlying policy models and structures that have influenced these – e.g. the status of and targeted support for freelance practitioners in different countries. It will also reflect on how cultural policy might be reshaped and re-imagined in a post Covid-19 future.

Insights will be shared from the Centre for Cultural Value and the British Council and will include a short keynote by Professor Franco Bianchini followed by panel responses and a discussion chaired by Anne Torreggiani (CEO, The Audience Agency & Co-Director of the Centre for Cultural Value). Our panelists are Chenine Bhathena, Creative Director of Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 and Moira Sinclair, Chief Executive, Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

We want to make the webinar a positive experience for all participants. If you have particular access needs please let us know in advance at ccv@leeds.ac.uk.

We will share a copy of the research findings with participants ahead of the webinar as well as the Zoom link.
