COVID-19: “The great unequaliser?”

Abstract art

As part of the COVID-19 national research project, led by the Centre for Cultural Value in collaboration with the PEC and The Audience Agency, this event will bring together leading contributors from the academic and cultural sectors, for our first COVID-19 research webinar – Covid-19: “The great unequaliser?”

The webinar will share emerging findings from our national research into the impacts of COVID-19, with a focus on inequalities, and will ask what we can do as a sector to ensure we build back a more equal future.

We will be joined by project researchers Mark Taylor, Karen Gray, Ben Dunn, John Wright and Oliver Mantell, as well as guest contributors, Dr Roaa Ali from the University of Manchester and Centre on the Dynamics of Ethnicity, and Lara Ratnaraja, a consultant who specialises in diversity, leadership, collaboration and innovation in cultural policy.
