HEartS Professional

The Health, Economic, and Social impact of COVID-19 on PROFESSIONALs in the ARTs

HEartS Professional is investigating the impact of the pandemic on professionals in the arts and culture sectors, providing knowledge, leadership, advocacy, and new ways forward when and where they are needed most.

The arts and culture sectors play a vital role in connecting and inspiring communities. In the COVID-19 crisis, these sectors are also among the most disrupted, with performances, exhibitions and exchanges of all kinds all but halted. The arts and cultural economies, and those who work within them, face unprecedented challenges and uncertainty.

The project surveys arts and culture professionals to determine precisely where challenges lie and how they evolve as the crisis unfolds, responding to those challenges with targeted investigations.

Please take part in and help share the survey to help us understand and inform best practices for the sector.
