The Compendium in times of COVID-19

The Compendium of Cultural Policies & Trends monitors current developments regarding COVID-19 and the cultural field. Firstly, we mobilised our expert authors to gather country specific information on the implications for the sector and the current measures being taken, which resulted in country reports. We have translated these reports into a comparative overview of financial measures. Additionally, we collected and curated online initiatives related to the cultural sector and the current COVID-19 crisis. Most recently, we started an interview series that examines the different dimensions of the role of artists, policy makers and the effects of COVID-19 on arts and culture in Europe. As cultural venues are slowly opening their doors again, we are also offering a comparative overview of reopening measures in different countries.
Most of our COVID-19 sections are updated a few times per week. If you have any further questions, please contact the Compendium’s Service Provider Team.
