Report on culture in times of Covid-19

UNESCO has published the report Culture in Times of COVID-19: Resilience, Recovery and Revival to map how the pandemic has impacted the cultural sector and how the sector should be supported.

The unprecedented global reach of the ongoing crisis requires coordinated multilateral cooperation at the regional and global levels.  In  this  light,  UNESCO  and  the  Department  of  Culture  and  Tourism  -  Abu  Dhabi  (DCT)  have  come  together  to  chart  a  roadmap for a holistic and integrated approach to support the sector’s sustainable and inclusive revival. Providing a first analysis of  the  impact  of  the  pandemic  on  the  culture  sector  as  a  whole,  spanning  all  regions  and  cultural  domains  since  March  2020,  Culture in Times of COVID-19: Resilience, Recovery, Revival reveals the major trends reshaping the sector and identifies pivotal responses to these changes. The report will be presented at the Culture Summit Abu Dhabi in May 2022 which, under the theme A Living Culture, will be instrumental in stimulating reflection on the potential of collectively, as well as the need to cultivate cultural ecosystems and embrace culture as a lived experience.
