How do Covid-19 and social distancing affect the delivery and value of borough or city of culture status?

July 14, 2020 @ 8:30 am 9:30 am

How did Waltham Forest and Hull make the most of their respective borough and city of culture status? How much would these programmes and initiatives have been changed by Covid-19? What value did they drive from the surge in arts activity and attention? How did those benefits inform their wider regeneration programmes? What has the next City of Culture got planned and how have its plans been affected by social distancing? Is this an opportunity to present a new approach to the arts? How will its programme support its recovery from the pandemic and ongoing resilience?
