As the arts and culture sector navigates through the pandemic, what role are the arts and art organizations playing in connecting Canadians?
During the pandemic, who among us didn’t turn to entertainment media and the arts to reduce the feeling of isolation and get through the day? At the same time, we missed opportunities to gather together to experience arts and culture in shared spaces. Now, as we look ahead after the last two and a half years, arts and arts and culture organizations can play an important role in moving forward. What have arts and arts and culture organizations learned that will reshape the sector of today?
At The Walrus Talks: Reconnecting Arts and Culture, professionals from across the industry representing the fields of visual art, comedy, film and television, literature, theater, and more come together to share how the pandemic has changed the way they view their sector, the stories they tell, and the audiences who experience their work.
Join us in Halifax for an evening of talks about an industry that is an essential part of Canada.
