ResiliArt – Round Tables

To evaluate the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis in the world puppetry arts sector, UNIMA International wishes to participate in the RésiliArt project initiated by UNESCO, to which it is a partner.

ResiliArt is a global movement that consists of a series of virtual round tables with artists and key professionals in the sector, whose objective is to raise awareness of the considerable impact of the containment measures and subsequent restrictions on the culture sector, as well as to support artists by engaging in a dialogue to inform UNESCO Member States in the development of policies and financial mechanisms that can help individuals and creative communities overcome this crisis.

To this end, UNIMA organized every week from june to august 2020 transnational roundtables in French, English, Spanish, Russian, Chinese.

From September to March, National Centres of UNIMA will propose twice a week national round tables. Some thematic round tables will also be proposed.
