The Great Depression (1929-1939) devastated many lives around the globe and demanded a surprising relief and recovery response. The New Deal resolution – a series of programmes and public work projects, financial reforms and regulations enacted by President Franklin Roosevelt in the USA between 1933 and 1939.
In 2020 we are facing a new global emergency. The cultural sector needs to work collaboratively towards our own New Deal resolution to support artists and rebuild the social cultural fabric.
