The Sun goes on strike!

Covid is not killing Culture. Poor political leadership is.

Admittedly, Culture was far from being the only sector affected by lockdowns and paying a heavy price in terms of lost revenue and jobs.

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

The pleasure and happiness that music, the arts and culture in general bring to people are priceless. Just like the warmth of the sun shining over our heads, their value cannot be reduced to simple pounds or euros.

There is a light that never goes out

The good news is that things seem to be finally moving in the right direction: many governments are finally announcing new initiatives and additional funding being earmarked specifically for the cultural sector.

  • Adequate funding is made available to support culture workers and cultural venues.
  • The requirements are clear and take into consideration the special needs of the cultural sector, so that no one is left out.
  • The applications are processed swiftly and the money is paid out quickly, because we are literally running out of time.
