On 14 September, Minister-president Jambon met his fellow European ministers of culture in Berlin. They were invited by the German Minister of Culture and Media, Monika Grütters, as part of the German EU Presidency programme.
The ministers exchanged views on the impact of the COVID19 pandemic on the cultural sector, support for artists and cultural institutions and on the resumption of cultural activities. They also addressed the specific problems experienced by internationally operating artists and companies as a result of the corona measures, such as quarantine regulations and travel restrictions.
The meeting ended with a visit to the Umboldt Forum which will open in December.
