The webinars focused on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the arts and culture sector and on how art organisations have been responding to it. We discussed how artist residencies can be better equipped for the future, as well as on how they are contributing to overcoming some of the most prominent societal challenges at the moment, such as the fight against racism and inequalities, and climate change.

Speakers are Yinka Shonibare CBE RA, Lisa Hoffman, Professor Lucy Orta, Marco Maria Zanin, Sarah Farrelly, Lea O’Loughlin, Professor Jean-Baptist Joly, Iris Ferrer, Johan Pousette and Luigi Galimberti.
