Being an Artist in Europe: Challenges, Funding Opportunities and New Approaches to Collaboration New "Talking Progress" Podcast episode: Anastasia Lemberg-Lvova and Gitte Zschoch discuss culture and its funding
Why are the spaces for arts and culture shrinking? And how can digital tools help to counter this development? Listen to the artist Anastasia Lemberg-Lvova and Gitte Zschoch, General Secretary of “ifa”, in a conversation about the role of artists and culture in our society and how funders and policymakers can better support cultural workers.
Artists and cultural workers are among the worst affected by the coronavirus pandemic. While some countries have offered support, others have let their artists down. Especially independent creators without connections to well-established cultural institutions are struggling. In this Interview, Dr Michael Wimmer, a renowned political scientist, offers an overview of this sector’s current situation and future challenges. An industry that he predicts will permanently change due to the pandemic’s wave of digitisation.
