COVID-19 and Workers in the Cultural and Creative Sectors Pan-european survey launch

The Covid- 19 crisis has had a tremendous impact on culture and creative workers’ life. 

The already implemented measures are not enough and in case of a new quarantine, their very survival will be in stake. We are in desperate need of new measures and grants.

We are making a tremendous effort to record the damage that the workers in culture have suffered in order to help in the creation of new policies and measures for their relief by local governments and the European Committee.

For that reason, we have launched the first research on the effects the COVID-19 crisis has had on CCI workers across Europe.

The research aims to:

o   Ιdentify the CCI workers’ socioeconomic situation.

o   Εvaluate their resilience.

o   Specify the conditions in each sub-sector individually.

o   Pinpoint changes to productivity and working processes due to Covid-19 crisis

o   Evaluate existing government measures


This research is part of MAX project (Makers’ Mobility Pilot project, co-funded by the European Union and coordinated by European Creative Hubs Network in partnership with Fab Lab Barcelona, UPTEC and Makery). 

It is imperative that we all participate and share it with anyone concerned. 

Here is the link to the survey:

It will be open until July 19th and the results will be published in September.
