The final results of the survey of the impact of COVID-19 on the attendance of cultural events and alternative forms of cultural activities in Slovenia are available on link below.
The producers of cultural events were among the first to be affected by the extraordinary circumstances declared in March due to the emergence of the new coronavirus. With venues closed, live events could not be carried out or attended, and even now, the organisation of cultural events is uncertain and dependent on rules regarding public gathering, which change from week to week.
The online survey placed the visitors of cultural venues at the forefront. From 10 to 28 June 2020, the first such comprehensive survey in Slovenia was carried out, with the researchers aiming to recognise the key aspects of attending cultural events after the partial loosening of measures to restrict the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They were interested in which measures visitors are prepared to follow when attending events, which measures they wish the organizers to ensure, and their views on alternative (online) forms of cultural activities. The survey is based on the responses of 2207 participants.
The following research was initiated by Kino Šiška Centre for Urban Culture, Ljubljana, SI and Glej Theatre, Ljubljana, SI in cooperation with respective individuals in the field of culture.
