Medzinárodná konferenbcia: 17 November 2021 – 18 November 2021
09:00 – 17:00

An online conference sharing and discussing insights and implications from our national research programme

How has the pandemic changed the cultural sector over the last 18 months? To what extent have the ways we produce, engage with and support culture been impacted? Has the crisis pushed the sector forward through adaptation and innovation, or made it more deeply entrenched in its existing inequalities? What does this mean for the future of the sector?

Join us online on Wednesday 17 and Thursday 18 November for two days of exchange and connection as we share findings and insights from fifteen months of research. We’ll consider the implications for the short and long-term health of the cultural sector and discuss how together we can create a more equitable and sustainable future.

With leading contributors from across the cultural and academic sectors, Covid-19: Changing Culture? will offer you various ways to engage: tackling big topics at plenary sessions on the main stage, focused discussions at our roundtables, opportunities for networking, and virtual booths to explore our research at your own pace. All with the opportunity for interaction, creativity and contribution.

Conference programme

This conference will present findings from a national research programme led by the Centre for Cultural Value in collaboration with the Creative Industries Policy and Evidence Centre and The Audience Agency. This project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) through UK Research and Innovation’s COVID-19 rapid rolling call.

You’ll find our plenary programme below. Alongside this will be a programme of roundtable discussions, and plenty of opportunities for networking and convening your own discussions.

Our full programme of sessions, speakers and spaces will be released in the coming weeks. To be kept up to date with conference schedule releases, as well as the latest findings from our Covid-19 research project, follow us on TwitterLinkedIn or sign up to our newsletter.
