Covid-19 – The great unequaliser?

Is the pandemic the catalyst the sector needs to build a more equal future? What questions should we be asking and how can we accelerate the pace of change?

In this webinar, we share emerging findings from our major research programme examining the impact of Covid-19 on the cultural sector. We’ll focus on what the research is telling us about inequality, and you’ll hear from researchers including Abigail Gilmore, Dave O’Brien, Anne Torreggiani and Ben Walmsley.

We’ll be joined by leading contributors including Roaa Ali from the University of Manchester and Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity who will respond to the research findings and share their thoughts on what needs to happen next.

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

This is the first of our webinars sharing emerging findings from the research, with two more scheduled for June and September. The research programme runs until November 2021 and there will be further events in November to share final findings.
