EXIT VIRTUAL CONFERENCES

COVID: HOW ARE ARTISTS AND CULTURAL MANAGERS ADAPTING TO THE NEW REALITIES?

MARCH 17th & 18th 

Nau Ivanow presents this conference as part of its ongoing project, Exit Journeys, initiated in 2017. Exit Journeys is conceived as a space to discuss, train and network around important and current issues for the global cultural community. This conference will focus on the new realities we are all facing because of the pandemic, with particular emphasis on artistic creation and cultural development.

Basically all cultural organisations are in various stages of lockdown and no one knows when they will open fully again and under what circumstances. Some organisations are in more trouble than others, depending on location, official support, the organisation’s traditional sources of income and their main activities. Everyone is responding to the crisis in different ways but it is also the case that everyone is looking to adapt to this new reality. This is especially true for artists, the people who such organisations support and mediate for with the public.

While there is a lot of attention being placed, at the moment, on the financial and health issues surrounding the pandemic, for this conference we want to focus on artists, artistic creation and cultural development itself. Questions such as how the pandemic is affecting the cultural ecosystem and what changes might result from this disruption to the traditional means of creation and dissemination: difficulties for theatre companies, dancers, musicians etc to meet and create together; public performances or presentations being reduced or cancelled; the move to online platforms, and so on. At this conference cultural managers and artists will give their views on the situation and participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and open discussions around the topic.

This is an opportunity to share insights and views from different parts of the world and to inspire each other for the future development of arts and culture, something we all share and believe in, with a view to working towards a renewed and stronger arts and culture movement for the future!

The conference will be split into two categories, with day one focusing on cultural managers and day two focusing on artists. Of course everyone is encouraged to attend both sessions. Each day there will be six speakers, with manages and artists from USA, Mexico, Chile, Spain, Switzerland and Hungary (centers and pannellists tbc). The conference moderator is Sandy Fitzgerald (Olivearte Cultural Agency).

This event will take place on ZOOM and the participation is free.

The conference will be in English and Spanish (according to each panellist preference) with simultaneous translation into Spanish or English, accordingly.
