Cogito Talks... The culture fix

Cogito Talks… A chat about creative people, places and industries – OECD webinar

In case you missed it… check out our session, “The culture fix: Creative people, places and industries”. Cultural and creative sectors have been profoundly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Catherine Magnant, Head Head, Cultural Policy Unit, Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture, European Commission
  • Ernesto Ottone, Assistant Director-General for Culture of UNESCO
  • André Wilkens, Director of the European Cultural Foundation
