COVID-19 and Sheffield's cultural sector: planning for recovery
Academics in English, Music and Urban Studies and Planning are documenting COVID-19's impact on the region's cultural and creative industries. Research on venues, audiences and freelancers, underpinned by analysis of the wider governance context, aims to support reopening and planning for recovery.
More on the Project
'Responding to and modelling the impact of COVID-19 for Sheffield's cultural ecology - a case study of impact and recovery' is an Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project. It will co-produce immediate research data with our partners in Sheffield's cultural and creative industries in order to directly impact recovery planning. The aim is to create a model of best practice for core cities and others in evaluating and responding to the impact of the pandemic on emplaced creative ecologies.
