Rebuilding Europe: what happens next?

This is a follow-up event to the release of the GESACxEY study entitled Rebuilding Europe: The cultural and creative economy before and after the COVID-19 crisis.

GESAC will be hosting an event all about the reopening of the cultural sector and relaunching of culture events. The letter that GESAC just co-signed along with six live event organisations urging the Commission to take the lead in coordinating the reopening of Europe’s cultural venues and the relaunching of cultural life, will be discussed. The letter follows an official EC communication, which stated that the Commission will develop reopening guidelines for the safe resumption of activities at festivals, theatres and other cultural spaces.
