For organizations that thrive on bringing people together to participate and share live arts and culture experiences in-person, COVID-19 has certainly disrupted the normal spring/summer 2020 events calendars of arts programming, celebratory weekends, performances, fetes, and festivals. In response to the uncertainty of the pandemic and the barriers it has created, programs from across the arts and culture sector are being reimagined for remote audiences—at home, online, and out of the box.
While looking ahead to September, Culture Days organizers are, undoubtedly, among the many who are learning to adapt to this new realm of arts participation. But how do we do this? How does one take their practice online? How do festivals remount remotely? How can we inspire more creativity at home? Our friends from across the pond will be sharing their experience of taking the Get Creative Festival remote in 2020! Last year, the Festival had nearly 1,700 events around the UK and Northern Ireland, but this year as the Coronavirus spread across the UK, they made the responsible decision to pivot their efforts from promoting an on-the-ground festival to supporting a new creative engagement initiative “#GetCreativeAtHome”.
