At the behest of Arts Council Norway, Menon Economics and BI: Centre for Creative Industries (BI:CCI) have assessed the impact of the coronavirus crisis on the Norwegian cultural sector.

In this report, we summarise the cultural sector's experience during the first six months of the coronavirus crisis. In addition, assuming that the pandemic will impose clear constraints on the sector's activities next year as well, we assess the outlook for those engaged in the cultural sector well into 2021.
