OVERVIEW OF THE FUNCTIONS OF THE POST
BackgroundThe COVID-19 pandemic has revealed and magnified the cultural and creative industries’ pre-existing volatility. Due to the precarious nature of their work, artists and culture professionals were severely impacted, particularly in relation to their income, access to social security and freedom of movement and artistic creation.
Against this backdrop, UNESCO launched a global movement ResiliArt, consisting of a series of virtual debates with key industry professionals and artists. The objectives of these debates, independently organized by interested parties around the world, are to: raise awareness about the far-reaching ramifications of COVID-19 across the cultural sector; support artists during and following the crisis, including advocating for inclusion of the art and culture sectors and their workers in COVID-19 relief plans and recovery plans; and thinking ahead to rebuilding the creative sectors post-COVID-19, in alignment with UN priorities, including socio-economic and environmental sustainability.
The key issues and concerns that emerge from the movement are shared with UNESCO Member States in order to inform their decision-making processes and help them better support the creative sector in times of crisis and post-crisis. More than 100 debates have been organized in over 60 countries, providing UNESCO with a wealth of information on the current state of the cultural and creative industries during and beyond the lockdown period.
Owing to the growing movement, UNESCO seeks to develop an information deck which contains findings and recommendations. The deck may be used to inform Member States, provide pertinent information for programmes as well as serve as a part of future informational materials developed by UNESCO.
