CAUSINDY ONLINE: THE ARTS
The arts is one of many industries that has suffered disproportionately as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic but it is also the industry that we turn to to distract, comfort and guide us in times of hardship. In the first panel of our webinar series, three experts working in the arts in Australia and Indonesia will explore the impact of COVID-19 on arts communities, the ways in which their projects have adapted and their hopes for how the industry will look a year from now.
The CAUSINDY Online Arts Panel was held on June 10, 2020. Missed the panel? Listen to the webinar recording on demand on the CAUSINDY Spotify page.
