The difficulties and challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic faced by the creative and cultural industries, as well as the consequences of the inability to act, are large-scale.
The workshop will, among other things, discuss how much and how national strategies, programs and measures for survival and recovery from the crisis respond to the newly created difficult circumstances for cultural and creative industries and focus on the potential of the digital environment and platforms, as well as and insufficient opportunities to transfer certain cultural content to the (mandatory) digital environment.

Rare examples of positive practices are evidence of an effective response to the emerging crisis, as well as pointing out to the public sector the lack of an adequate response to the growing needs of public opinion.
The digital environment is a platform for frequent violations of individual rights and deficient legislative protection frameworks. The workshop will be an opportunity for participants to get acquainted with case studies of complex micro-aggression in the new circumstances of the digital environment towards people with disabilities.

The workshop will also present the publication Kitchen of Diversity – a cross-section of programs held as part of the program direction Kitchen of Diversity of Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture.
