The pandemic has hit the creative and cultural sectors hard and restricts the mobility and opportunities of artists worldwide. What learnings come from the pandemic about how to support artists and cultural activists in situations of political, social and economic threat? What coping strategies and best practices evolved for the future work of protection programmes? What innovative and creative formats have been developed and tested and can help support artists in the future?
