Art History & Cultural Practices Research Seminars & Events 2021-2022 S1
Cultural recovery – researching the arts & heritage in times of crisis
How does the arts respond to traumatic events?
What kinds of social care and solace can artworks and the culture institutions that commission and exhibit them offer?
And how have artists and arts workers found their own pathways for respite and recovery from the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic?
