“Living Heritage in the face of the COVID-19” is one of the six UNESCO reports on the impact of COVID-19 on culture
UNESCO launched a series of six reports revealing the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the culture sector: world heritage sites, living heritage, creative industries, museums and cities. This sector-wide approach aims to provide decision-makers and cultural actors with current data, practices, and guidance to better inform strategies for the future.
As one of these reports, “Living Heritage in the face of the COVID-19” highlights the impact of the pandemic on the practice and transmission of living heritage as well as on the way communities turned to living heritage as a source of solace and resilience. The report suggests three broad areas of action for post-pandemic recovery plans.
