Abstract:

This is a summary of the official report presented by the Inquiry on
the Restart for Arts and Culture that was appointed by the Swedish Government in December 2020. In the report, the Inquiry proposes measures that will create better conditions for the restart, recovery and development of the arts and culture sector during and after the COVID-19 pandemic and, in addition, promote a strong, sustainable and independent cultural sector in all parts of Sweden.
The Inquiry’s terms of reference (ToR 2020:143) can be summed up under four headings:
1. To summarise the consequences of the pandemic for arts and culture, locally, regionally and nationally, and to analyse what lessons can be learnt.
2. To identify what measures are needed for the restart, recovery and development of the arts and culture sector during and after the pandemic.
3. To highlight new ways of making arts and culture accessible that have developed or become established during the pandemic, and that have the potential to contribute positively to achieving the national cultural policy objectives. Where necessary, to propose measures to strengthen such initiatives.
4. To identify structural problems in the arts and culture sector and its infrastructure brought to light during the pandemic; to identify lingering effects of the pandemic; and, where necessary, to pro- pose measures to make the sector more sustainable.
