In the Dutch-language publication Hoe komt de cultuursector uit de coronacrisis? (How will the cultural sector emerge from the corona crisis?), the Boekman Foundation takes stock of what we know — as of April 16th, 2020 — about the short- and long-term consequences of the corona virus for the Dutch cultural sector and the effectiveness of the announced support measures. In addition, the publication examines what is still unknown and presents questions that should be answered in order to get a better picture of the long-term consequences and to shape adequate policy. This document is an English summary of the publication.
The Boekman Foundation will continue to work on answering these questions and invites others within the sector to contribute as well. Together, we can not only gain insight into how the sector can survive this crisis, but also how it can emerge stronger.
