Atelier Montreal: How the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted arts and festivals

05 June 22

Plenary: The New Abnormal: How the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the arts generally and Festivals in particular – the good, the not-so-good and the never-to-be-repeated

COVID-19 has generally devastated the arts sector over a period of more than two years. And yet, the pandemic and its related lockdowns forced the arts sector to be innovative, to think out the box, to explore online, hybrid and other forms of creating, producing and distributing work. What are the positive consequences of COVID-19 for festivals? What have we learned during this time that we can build on? And what should never be repeated? 

Speakers: Anna Gallagher-Ross, Christine van Winkle, Kee Hong Low, Nayse López, Quito Tembe
