On 15th April 2020, UNESCO launched a global movement and invited Uganda to organise series of ResiliArt Movement meetings to shed light on the current state of Creative Industries, engaging with industry professionals and practitioners for their views and capturing experiences of resilience from artists. It raised awareness about the far reaching ramifications of the Covid-19 across the sector and proposed supporting measures to artists during and after the crisis. ResiliArt aimed to ensure the continuity of conversations, data sharing and advocacy efforts during and after the pandemic.
Uganda carried out 6 meetings between 15 April- 16th May 2020 engaging a range of stakeholders. The results of the dialogues were submitted to UNESCO.
There were six meetings held to discuss ResiliArt which attracted 20 panelists attracting about 500 participants.
