Ismaili Centre Conversations London: The Covid Culture Shock – 16 December 2020
The Covid Culture Shock, hosted by the Ismaili Centre London, brings together leading voices from South Kensington’s world-renowned art and science district, featuring the Royal Albert Hall, V&A, Natural History Museum, Science Museum, Serpentine Galleries, Ismaili Centre, and Goethe Institut. It will be chaired by former UK Culture Minister Lord Vaizey. The Covid pandemic has sent shock waves around the world and left cultural venues fighting for survival. But it has also delivered new partnerships, digital innovations, and unforeseen connections with audiences and communities. Together, the panelists will explore the legacy of 2020, and how the crucible of Covid can be used to forge a new, thriving, and inclusive future for global culture, as well as the vital role of culture in creating hope and change in a post-Covid world. They will also address the issues facing cultural leaders around the world.
