“Culture in the time of Corona” Cultural Project

The project was a creative response against Covid-19 crisis aiming to support the cultural sector, especially freelance and self-employed artists, who were economically most affected by the crisis. The city enabled open stages for live performances in 28 different urban areas situated in 8 city’s municipalities. 50 concerts were organized in April and May 2020, where more than 200 musicians (bands, solo artists, DJs) performed live during the night time corona curfews. The events were followed by an audience of more than 500.000 viewers on the social media (though live streams) and live from the balconies in the neighbourhoods where events took place. Each live performance was supported with a fee (equal to a minimal wage in the country). Same fee was given to the acknowledged names as well as to the young talents, in order to embrace as many participants as possible and to increase the social effects of the project.
