The scope of the study is yet to be determined, but we anticipate it will help our sector to:

- understand the impact COVID-19 is having on the UK's cultural and creative sector

- predict the short, medium and long terms risks of the crisis to our sector

- formulate recommendations for Government and key decision makers to mitigate against these risks in the future

- collate the personal stories of the sector workforce and organisations to build up an authoratative qualatative picture

- gather best practice examples of where the sector is innovating to survive

- analyse the work of other organisations and sector representative bodies

- keep the sector updated on the impacts of COVID-19

​- promote national awareness of the particular challenges of our sector

- create a network of individuals and organisations who will require ongoing support once this crisis is over​

We are actively looking for collaborators to support the work of this study and welcome contact from anyone wishing to be involved.
