This fifth volume of Cultural Connections focuses on the arts and culture’s response to the year 2020—a year that will be remembered for the COVID-19 pandemic that tested the entire world economically, socially, and politically. This edition is a testament to the arts and culture communities who have rallied together to bring solace, entertainment, and joy during this isolating time. The issue offers a range of perspectives contributed by thought leaders from Australia, China, France, Germany, Indonesia and Singapore, on how institutions, governments and communities have, and are responding to the pandemic, as well as their thoughts on the way forward to keep the arts and culture alive well into the future.
