Cultural leaders responding to Covid-19

Cultural leaders from around the globe started a new initiative in order to find new ways of collaborative practices in the times of corona virus Covid-19. The international group was formed by Michael Peter Edson (USA) and Jasper Visser (NL). Radiona – Zagreb Makerspace has been invited to take part in the initiative.

The international non-formal think-tank consisted of cultural professionals with an aim to:

  • To learn how leaders are responding to the challenges of the Covid-19 crisis
  • To help leaders learn from each other & advance their individual and collective work
  • To identify shared challenges and solutions that can be used to help others in the field
