Arts Practices and Cultural Policies in Conditions of Disaster

Guest Editors: Keith Nurse (Principal / President at Sir Arthur Lewis Community College)

Submission Deadline: 1 September 2021

This issue focuses on responses to, and long-term changes in the arts and cultural policy fields related to the current climate, health, and economic crises. Contributed articles examine organizational and economic models that allow for continued cultural production and community engagement during times of disaster. How can we learn from instantaneous reactions to crises and from cases of disaster mismanagement, and translate these insights into viable practices? What governmental and institutional policies are needed, in the long run, to secure a diverse artistic and cultural landscape? How do research methods, education, and programming need to change to accommodate conditions of crises? What do policies and practices for a resilient arts and cultural sector look like?


Contributions are welcome in the following areas:

  • Leadership and funding models
  • Economic impact of crises and disasters on the cultural sector
  • Hybrid programming (online and on-site)
  • Working modes and conditions
  • Sustainable production both in terms of climate responsibility and institutional awareness
  • Risk management and risk policies in the cultural field
  • Resilience of the cultural sector
