5 - Arts and culture: the voices of the community
Will it possible - and desirable – to “reroute” art and culture so that they assert themselves in communities, whether on the scale of a street, neighbourhood or village, in the aftermath of the pandemic? Doing so would require priorities in this sector to be reassessed, the work methodologies employed to be altered (for example, appeals would need to be launched to communities, both for information-gathering and in order to involve members of communities in the performances themselves), investments to be made into resources and skills to be acquired. This path would require a change in mindset and in language. Culture will no longer be for the people, rather of the people.
