COVID-19 Recovery and Resilience Plan: full document31 May 2020
North East Culture and Tourism Recovery and Resilience Plan
We bring together practitioners, local authorities, universities, colleges, businesses and voluntary organisations across the North East at a strategic policy level. Our collective purpose is to champion, promote and support the arts and heritage sectors in the region and internationally.
This North East Culture and Tourism Recovery and Resilience Plan will be a current, live and responsive document.
“The cultural sector makes a huge contribution to the region, not just economically, but also in terms of our sense of place, identity and our wider well-being. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a massive impact, with many organisations struggling to survive and individual livelihoods put at risk. At the same time, we have seen many examples of incredible ingenuity, creativity and generosity to adapt to the current restrictions and provide access to cultural experiences to everyone. The cultural sector will play a key role in our recovery – economically and socially, so we need to support it now.”
