More than a year of anxiety brought about by lockdowns, curfews, and other restrictions during the corona pandemic has made everyday life resembling a dystopian novel all around the world. In the times of Covid-19, we have also witnessed alarming developments: questionable assertions of states’ authority, an increase in domestic violence and the rising vulnerability of the lowest paid workers. Our shared vulnerability has revealed our commonality underscoring our humanity. 

On 10 November, a one-day event on Creativity and Resilience in Times of Covid-19, organized by AIAS Fellow Tijen Tunali, will bring researchers from art history, music science and information science together with a diverse programme of seminar talks, screening of a new documentary and an art exhibition, including street art, audiovisual coronamusic and an online interactive exhibition.

The aim of the event is to address the role of creativity as a tool for resilience in the midst of a global pandemic - when all the art institutions were closed - by investigating the renewed role of the visual arts and music in re-imagining what it is to be a caring and sharing community. 

The event is open to all, both students, researchers and non-academics.
