In the second online seminar of the #CooltourTalk series on May 20th state secretary of art Petra Olschowski discussed with creative artists about theaters in times of corona. On June 9 she spoke with actors of the independent art scene from different fields about artistic practice in times of cancelled concerts and closed clubs. On June 23 music was the main topic of this virtual format.
Solution-oriented, lively and interactive: all of these four #CooltourTalks clarified the existential relevance of the art and how important it is to support them in the current crisis.

Especially artists are severely affected. Therefore, the next step should be to make culture visible to society again - through carefully considered regulations and specific funding.
