ResiliArt is a global movement initiated by UNESCO that aims to strengthen the resilience of artists and cultural professionals in the face of the enormous challenges posed by the current health crisis.

The ResiliArt movement will:

  • Raise awareness about the impact of COVID-19 on the culture sector and the livelihoods of culture professionals
  • Give visibility to artists worldwide – renowned or unknown – and ensure their voices are heard at the policy level to address existing gaps and needs
  • Contribute to decision-making processes of Member States during the development of policies and financial mechanisms aimed at empowering artists

ResiliArt is an online debate series with key industry professionals and artists – both established and emerging – that raises awareness of the far-reaching impact of the pandemic on the culture sector as well as the importance of cultural and creative industries for economic development and social cohesion. It also aims to support Member States in the development of policies and financial mechanisms that can help creative individuals and communities overcome the current crisis.
