Due to the impact of extraordinary measures taken because of the Covid-19 pandemic on stakeholders of the cultural and creative industries in Brno, Brno leaders and the Department of Culture of the Brno City Municipality are working intensively on a set of precautions for minimizing the damages. At the same time, communication is conducted on all levels of public administration, predominantly in collaboration with the Institut umění – Divadelní ústav [Arts and Theatre Institute], which is mapping the situation on the nationwide level. Until 22 March 2020 you can help assess the current situation by means of an online survey (the link is provided below). Further steps will be taken according to the results of the survey.
The results of the survey conducted by the Arts and Theatre Institute are available here. Until 22 March 2020 you can fill in a short questionnaire that will help assess the current situation and subsequently introduce necessary measures. The questionnaire is available here. The conclusions of the collected data will be used for the internal needs of the Department of Culture of the Brno City Municipality and as a basis for the city authorities in making their decisions. Subsequently, the results will be available on the website of the Department of Culture of the Brno City Municipality, together with additional suggested measures.
