In Conversation with Andy Dinan|Open Journal

Open Journal recently chatted with Andy Dinan about the impact of COVID 19 on museums, galleries and the creative industries, the use of digital platforms and what we can learn and do in response.

Unfortunately, due to closures to major galleries, theatres and public spaces, grants such as The Sidney Myer Fund’s new National Assistance Program for the Arts have been labelled a “drop in the bucket” given the sheer depth of the problem which is further exacerbated by most artists being inelgible for the Jobkeeper payment.
