The role of the Arts during the Covid-19 Pandemic

This report draws on a range of literature to explore (i) how audiences and arts behaviours changed and whether such changes are showing signs of becoming persistent within our society, (ii) how and why the arts helped people to cope during the pandemic, and (iii) how those working within the arts and cultural sector have been affected. Bradbury, Warran, Mak & Fancourt (University College London), 2021
