Culture in Quarantine // The sixth Edition

The sixth special newsletter brings you information about the recently passed set of measures proposed by the Minister of Culture, a summary of more government measures related to people in culture, which was submitted by the Ministry of Culture. We also list reactions to the current state from the International Theatre Institute, Czech music representatives, and the National Theatre Drama. We would like to inform you about the launch of an extensive survey on mapping the losses, carried out by the ATI in association with the University of Economics and DAMU (Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts), we list more examples of international measures (we keep updating the information on the special site on our website International Best Practice), we present useful projects and links in cultural overviews, and the Focus section deals with the impacts of the coronacrisis on show business.

Culture in Quarantine // The Fifth Edition

The fifth special newsletter brings you new and updated measures to mitigate the impacts of the pandemic, as well as international good practice. The ATI portal Kreativní Česko prepared an overview of inspiring measures for municipalities and regions; we have also published an overview of European umbrella organizations and networks, engaged in monitoring the situation in the cultural sector and raising questions to the European Commission and EU Member States’ governments.

Culture in Quarantine // The Fourth Edition

In our fourth special newsletter we discuss the emergence of a research methodology for mapping losses in the cultural sector in which IDU participates together with VŠE and AMU. We also present an overview of new measures of the MIT and the MLSA aimed at mitigating the economic impacts of extraordinary government measures in the field of culture.

Culture in Quarantine // The Third Edition

In our third special newsletter we’re bringing you an overview of different ministries’ official recommendations for the arts sector. Are you trying to get back into the country? Do you have a grant issue you’re not sure how to handle? Read on. The wave of solidarity is leading to newly emerging projects offering rapid mutual support, whether you’re looking for work, alternative forms of contact with spectators or online mental health support. And because we feel it’s time to do something about the onslaught of information and activity resulting from the order, we’re including a new section, Intermission, to offer inspirations you’d enjoy even in normal circumstances.

Culture in quarantine // The Second Edition

Our next newsletter has brought you proposals for the first structural measures related to independent arts, tips for platforms for sharing job offers and demands, overviews of online streaming of performances and concerts, virtual gallery tours and other creative procedures, proving the power and creativity of the cultural sector in hard times – you can find information about theatres making face masks, for instance.

Mapping the Impact of the Ministry of Health’s Extraordinary Measures on the Czech Independent Arts Sector: A Summary

Data was collected from 12:00 on 12 March 2020 to 13:00 on 16 March 2020 via a research questionnaire. The questionnaire was addressed to representatives of umbrella organisations, professional associations and individuals. Its emphasis was also to establish the current situation of subjects, individual artists and other professionals that work in the independent arts scene and are not part of larger organisations. While collecting the data, ATI collaborated with other organisations and media currently carrying out their own research, in order to avoid duplication of data.
