Cultural quarantine

Due to the Co-vid19 pandemic that hits most of the planet, in Chile phase four of the virus was declared, so measures to hold the spread were enacted. These measures includes the limitation of activities according the number of people, thinking about the displacement of persons who can facilitate the disease transmission. That’s why performing arts and spaces where are carried out were declared in quarantine, calling off the programmed performances until the end of March and, in some cases, for whole April as well. In Arte Al Límite we show you a count of the cultural institutions and artistic companies that announced their adherence to these measures.

Meanwhile, the UNA, National Union of Artists, calls on government authorities to implement a mitigation plan for the cultural industries, in order to alleviate the low incomes of arts workers, who are hard hit by the lack of audiences, as they do not receive any income. Emphasizing how the social explosion affected the country’s creators, they call for the formation of a working group with the Ministries of Culture and Arts and of Finance to agree on measures to help the sector overcome the crisis.

The call is to be responsible, stay at home, avoid crowds and attend all cultural activities as soon as the quarantine is lifted. In the meantime, you can read the liberated library of Unesco, visit Ondamedia or be attentive to our instagram @arteallimite so that you have #tuobradiaria
