Creative Scene Webinar: Is COVID amplifying arts exclusion?

Creative Scene Webinar: Is COVID amplifying arts exclusion?

Thursday 12 November, 10 - 11.30am

Join Creative Scene for the first of two insightful online discussions about the digital deficit and cultural democracy in the time of COVID.

The digital responses to the COVID crisis produced an array of inspiring arts and cultural practice – but very little discussion about the readiness, relevance or accessibility of digital content for audiences who may experience digital exclusion.

Join us on Zoom for provocations from Anne Torreggiani (Centre for Cultural Value), Aidan Moesby (artist, researcher and curator), 6 Million+ (arts remembrance charity working with refugees and asylum seekers) and others to discuss how we remain connected to lesser engaged audiences in an era where opportunities to be physically together are limited.

Creative Scene will share direct findings from research discussions undertaken during COVID with their audience in North Kirklees. Traditionally seen as excluded or lesser engaged in arts and culture, we asked our audience how they felt about the acceleration of digital content from cultural organisations during lockdown.
