How are London’s leading cultural organisations adapting for the future?
You are invited to join London cultural leaders at a special, live online event, to reflect on lessons from the Covid crisis and to reimagine the future for our cultural venues and districts.
The Covid Culture Shock, hosted by the Ismaili Centre London, brings together leading voices from South Kensington’s world-renowned art and science district, featuring the Royal Albert Hall, V&A, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, Serpentine Galleries and the Ismaili Centre. For the Goethe-Institut London, our director, Katharina von Ruckteschell-Katte, will contribute to the discussion. It will be chaired by former UK Culture Minister Lord Vaizey.
The Covid pandemic has sent shock waves around the world, and left cultural venues fighting for survival. But it has also delivered new partnerships, digital innovations and unforeseen connections with audiences and communities.
Together, the panelists will explore the legacy of 2020, and how the crucible of Covid can be used to forge a new, thriving and inclusive future for global culture, as well as the vital role of culture in creating hope and change in a post-Covid world. They will also address the issues facing cultural leaders around the world.
Discussion will be followed by a live Q&A.
