Extra money for culture workers

Extra money for culture workers

While culture workers protest in the UK (London, Manchester) and one third of US museums may be closed permanently, Slovak government allocates extra €11 million for artists who are most at risk, e.g. those whose self-employment collides with a part-time contract at art schools. RSI talks to the director of the Slovak Arts Council as well as to several directors of independent culture institutions to map the impact coronavirus crisis has on this sphere of society. A star international filmmaker and a RSI listener share their opinion too.
