Podcast: Artists and the COVID-19 crisis

The COVID-19 crisis has had a big impact on the arts community.

Filmmaker Zebedee Parkes sits down with visual artist Markela Panegyres to discuss the impact COVID-19 is having on the arts community, how many of these issues have existed for years due to decades of government funding cuts and the devaluing of the arts in society, and why art is more important now than ever.
