Covid-19 Lockdown Exit Strategy: Europe-wide dialogue for coordinated actions to unlock theatres

ETC asks for a commitment on European level to support Member States to facilitate the exchange of information in order to enable coordinated actions to unlock theatres. We need to ensure the continuity of our sector’s activities with a European relevance once the pandemic shall be passed, and we need solutions to compensate for the financial loss due to the adjustments when gradually reopening our venues.

Theatres, operas and live performing art venues across Europe are confronted with growing financial implications due to the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown. Resuming artistic activities in the near future will be crucial for our sector to survive.

Programme

These are troubled times. The future is very uncertain for theatres: how can theatre respond to the current crisis and limit its impact? When will we reopen, and will the audience return? How will we need to adapt to the ‘new normal’? These urgent questions will be addressed during the next ETC International Theatre Conference, which will take place online. Although we will not be able to meet in person, ETC will remain a place for you to discover, network and exchange on best practice.

ETC International Theatre Conferences are open to members and invited guests. The panel discussion on Thursday morning will be live-streamed thanks to our partnership with HowlRound Theatre Commons.

EU-Erklärung zur Kultur in der Covid19-Krise

🇪🇺📣 The Croatian EU Presidency has presented a joint declaration on "culture in times of Covid 19 Crisis". It's a positive way forward, to see the sector's and ETC's advocacy efforts resulting in first commitments from European policy leaders to recognise culture as key resource in the aftermath of the crisis and the recovery from it.

Intensified coordinated actions on European level are much needed to support the cultural sector, and also the theatres of Europe, to survive the pandemic.
