Culture crisis: The future of the performing arts

What will be the effect on the performing arts after months of being shut down?

Some are predicting that despite the easing of the lockdown, the arts will be devastated by the financial impact of the pandemic. What will be the effect on the performing arts and on our culture after months in which the cinemas, theatres, concert halls and galleries have been shut down, with huge uncertainty about how and when they will reopen? How will this seismic shock change our culture? Will people start to consume culture increasingly in the privacy of their own homes?

Singer-songwriter KT Tunstall and the veteran jazz pianist and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Intercultural Dialogue, Herbie Hancock, discuss the topic with host Zeinab Badawi and a virtual audience from around the world.
