Research on the COVID-19 pandemic and Zagreb earthquake
At the beginning of 2021 the Foundation published the „Impact of COVID-19 and Zagreb Earthquake on CSOs in Contemporary Culture and Arts. Results of the Test Phase of the Research“ publication, that was written by Krešimir Krolo, Željka Tonković, Dea Vidović and Ana Žuvela. The publication presents the results of the first phase of the longitudinal research on the impact of COVID-19 pandemic and the earthquake that hit Zagreb on 22nd March 2020 on CSOs in contemporary culture and arts. The Foundation started the research within the framework of the Research and Development Department in May 2020.
Some of the key motives for this research, besides the obvious need to empirically look at the consequences of the effect of the global crisis and the earthquake on the cultural and artistic sector, include the necessity that these consequences have to be explored from a number of perspectives – the role and position of arts and culture in social and economic processes during the crisis, simultaneous processes of vulnerability and resilience of the cultural sector, consequences of the spill over of negative effects of the crisis on the cultural and artistic sector and the overall ecosystem and policy making, i.e. looking at instruments, mechanisms and measures of international, national and local public policies implemented for restraining the immediate and long-term impacts of the crisis.
