In April 2020, in order to contribute to the development of evidence-based cultural policies – applied research to serve policy design – promoting and advocating for innovative policies and practices in the cultural and creative sectors in the post Covid-19 era, ENCATC set up a new Think Tank bringing together culture and education institutions from across Europe willing to contribute both to the better understanding and deeper knowledge of COVID-19’s various impacts. In addition, the newly established Think Tank Culture Post Covid-19 will be crucial for engaging the cultural management and policy community with other networks and stakeholders in a global scale to transform the conversation around climate change and translate it into research-based policy actions. To this end, the Think Tank meetings will be open to representatives America and Asia and thus to integrate in the Think Tank best practices and innovative ideas to tackle the climate change challenges from other world regions perspectives
At date, the Think Tank is made up of a diverse group of professionals, academics, researchers and representatives of EU cultural networks and universities. They are interested to gather, analyse, and come away with robust findings for evidence-based policy recommendations that could allow the Cultural sector to better navigate during the current and future turbulent times.
Members of the Think Tank receive a bi-monthly Post Covid-19 Newsletter to stay up to date on the latest developments.
In this framework, the Cultural Policy Tracker is a quarterly publication gathering contributions from the members of the Think Tank and widely disseminated to policy makers.
As a member of the Think Tank, Culture Action Europe has contributed to this issue with an article about the impact of the Covid pandemic on working conditions in Cultural Creative Sectors and Industries.
