Resilience and Adaptation: Culture and the Corona Crisis

Social distancing requirements have abruptly put a halt to most cultural events. While museums and libraries in some communities in the United States and in Europe slowly start to re-open, concerts, performances, and many other cultural events are being cancelled for the rest of the year. How can cultural institutions survive under such circumstances – and will they adapt? What can artists, musicians, and cultural managers do? What will the future look like for cultural institutions? Join us for a conversation with accomplished experts about the unique challenges facing the arts and culture in this unprecedented time.

Resilience and Adaptation: Media and the Corona Crisis

Journalism and the media play an indispensable role in democracies – especially in times of crisis. How can journalists keep the public informed about the world around them in the midst of a lock-down and with social distancing in place? How can they gather information for their reporting and opinion pieces? And, how does one ensure that alternative facts do not masquerade as opinion? Joining us to discuss the challenges facing the media in Europe and the United States during the pandemic are two editorial page editors.
Sewell Chan (ACG Young Leader) is the editorial page editor of the LA Times
Anna Sauerbrey (2018 ACG Kellen Fellow) is the editorial page editor of the Berlin daily Der Tagesspiegel
