NPR Virtual Speaker Series: A Discussion About the Creative Industries Path to Recovery from the COVID Crisis

October 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm EDT

The coronavirus 2019 disease (COVID-19) pandemic has created both a public health crisis and an economic crisis in the United States. The ripple effects are far-reaching, and have not missed the arts, culture and creative economy. An August 2020 study published by the Brookings Institution reports estimated losses of 2.7 million jobs and more than $150 billion in sales of goods and services for creative industries nationwide through July 2021, representing nearly a third of all jobs in those industries and 9% of annual sales.

The creative economy is one of the sectors most at risk from the COVID-19 crisis. Arts, culture and creativity are one of the key sectors that drive regional economies. What does this mean for the economy in Georgia? What does this mean for the well-being and quality of life in our local communities?

Join GPB’s Rickey Bevington with NPR’s Yuki Noguchi and Neda Ulaby for a free live discussion about the creative industry’s path to recovery from the COVID crisis.

We would also like to invite you to an interactive VIP Q&A Virtual Reception immediately following the talk. Rickey, Yuki and Neda will be available to answer your questions and chat with guests in an online setting. We would be pleased to have you join us in the VIP Q&A Virtual Reception with a donation of $25. Please make your gift securely online at www.gpb.org/NPRcreative to attend this exclusive event.
