Infected Cities: four new LIVECASTS on creative resilience in European cities

How can urban culture and creativity be a driver of social impact? A series organised together with Pakhuis de Zwijger.
7 December 2020
Infected Cities in Europe

The resurgence of the coronavirus particularly across Europe makes clear that the pandemic will not pass soon. Besides, European cities have to deal with other crises concerning for example social inequality, polarisation and the living conditions of migrants. The cultural and creative sectors as well as cultural participation can be a driver of social impact in its own right, favouring resilience and innovation.  

Together with Pakhuis de Zwijger in this series, we search for different so-called ‘city makers’, such as artists, designers and other storytellers. They can give us an insight into their daily works and explain how they commit to making a positive impact in their city in these ongoing corona times and support those who suffer the most. Who are these people and which roles can creatives take to have a social impact in their city?
