There is no sector in the global economic ecosystem which hasn’t been impacted by the current COVID-19 crisis. The performing arts sector, for many obvious reasons, has been hit hard: with an immediate and catastrophic impact on the most fragile part of the value chain – artists, and with significant snow-ball effects rolling out for the rest of the sector.
We have circulated a survey among our members, to get a grip on how the new reality has affected them so far. There is an abundance of surveys flying around in the cultural sector these days. The purposes of ours are to sense the spirit embracing the global performing arts community today, to detect the solidarity mechanisms and survival strategies, as well as to identify the most burning needs and transform them into sensible recommendations for policy-makers.
