Arts and Culture Recovery Taskforce Report published
The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin, T.D., today welcomed the publication of Live Worth Living, the Report of the Arts and Culture Recovery Taskforce.
It has been widely acknowledged that the impact of COVID-19 on the Arts/Culture sector has been more detrimental, and will last longer, than in nearly any other sector. Almost all activity has stopped and it is likely that for many parts of the sector it will be among the last to restart.
The Taskforce has now completed its work and its Chairperson, Ms. Clare Duignan, submitted the report to the Minister, which was noted by Government earlier today.
Life Worth Living report recommendations include:
- income, taxation and financial provision measures;
- education and training supports;
- technology supports;
- mental health supports;
- social protection measures;
- copyright measures
