Join us for a live conversation about arts and recovery on a global level

ALL ARTS Talks continues the discussion about arts and recovery with a live conversation about what it looks like on a global level


Though the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the arts and culture landscape continue to be revealed, plans for the near and distant future are beginning to formulate.

Using recovery as a lens, ALL ARTS Talks explores the impact of the health crisis on artists and institutions. For our next entry into the series, we are widening our scope to include a conversation on how demonstrations against racism in the United States are affecting the art community on an international scale.

ALL ARTS Talks Recovery: A Global Perspective streams live Tuesday, June 23 at 10 a.m. Eastern and is hosted by Karen Brooks Hopkins, ALL ARTS Advisory Board member and former president of Brooklyn Academy of Music. She will be joined by Afroditi Panagiotakou (director of culture at the Onassis Foundation), Rufus Norris (artistic director of National Theatre), Teesa Bahana (director of 32° East | Ugandan Arts Trust), Amelie Deuflhard (artistic director of Kampnagel) and ALL ARTS Editorial Board member Kemi Ilesanmi (executive director of the Laundromat Project).

Digging deeper into what the current moment looks like for each of these art leaders, the livestreamed talk will hone in on topics such as Germany’s arts stimulus package (which recently set aside €1bn for arts and culture), the unique vulnerabilities facing the theater industry in the United Kingdom and how the coronavirus outbreak has rippled through arts groups in Uganda.

The conversation will also turn toward how global protests against police brutality and racism have potentially shifted the role of art institutions moving forward as organizations contend with structural issues.

Panelists will address audience questions submitted via the ALL ARTS YouTube channel and Facebook page during the livestream.
