The decision of UK citizens – to stay or leave the EU – will affect the cultural life of future generations all across the continent. So how do European citizens hope they will vote? Katherine Heid shares her perspective.
Indian director and activist Usha Ganguly said theatre depicts reality better than any other medium of entertainment and was founded on the principles of promoting tolerance and peace in societies. “It is still doing its job … promoting peace and love between the Indian and Pakistani people,” she added. “When we say artists are ambassadors of countries, we mean exactly this.” She urged the Indian and Pakistani governments to relax visa policies in this regard.
Public cultural institutions must be makers – and not hostages – of digitalisation. This requires resources – museums, theatres or libraries need to be able to actively invest in digital transformation – especially in times of dwindling public funding. At the same time, the Cultural and Creative Industries are experiencing an ongoing boom of investments in digital infrastructures including platforms and streaming services, which are attracting a dynamically growing demand.

"The random and indiscriminate nature of air strikes in and around Sana’a made it difficult to pinpoint a completely safe area to hold the workshop." Filmmaker Sara Ishaq relates how a four-day art workshop helped give a degree of solace to Yemeni children made homeless by war.

What’s next in the fight against declining audiences and exclusivity in the arts? Clever pricing strategies are all well and good, but what we really need is market segmentation, argue Howard Buckley and Rosie Hanley.
While during the communist period, artists in Eastern Europe may have been restricted by ideology, today, it is the market that in fact constricts them, as they struggle to eke out an existence as creative labourers.
