How the music sector is benefiting from digitalisation during the COVID-19 pandemic

The cultural and creative sectors were one of the industries hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, using digital tools, creativity and innovation, artists where able to stay in contact with their audiences, to share content and to bring concerts into living-rooms. New forms of content have emerged, some of them showing the artist recording in their own home and creating a more personal relationship compared with the previous stage-audience separation. Digitalisation has also brought music to people who would otherwise not necessarily have attended a venue, e.g. a classical concert to marginalised or vulnerable groups.


The EESC will host the presentation of a study entitled "Moving towards a new, strengthened system of industrial relations resulting from the emergency COVID-19 measures" on Thursday 9 December, in the JDE building, meeting room JDE62.

The study, published in October 2021, will be presented by its authors at a meeting which is expected to take the form of an open debate between a panel of speakers, who will make statements on the topic, and the audience.


To mark the 2021 European Year of Rail, the EESC is organising a screening of a short film by the Europalia Arts Festival.

The short film will be an excerpt from the dance performance La Ronde by the famous French choreographer Boris Charmatz. Charmatz performed live for six hours in the hall of Brussels North train station on 15 October, in a show that was part of the Europalia Trains and Tracks programme for 2021. A six-hour series of events with dancing, singing and talking duets, visualising and symbolising a collective moment in a public space.

An exhibition on multilingualism and the importance of translation

Created in 2018, this in-house exhibition is a tribute to the EU fundamental values of democratic legitimisation and multilingualism and focuses on Regulation 1/1958, which determined the languages to be used by the EU institutions and set out the language arrangements applicable to them.

Regulation 1/1958 has played a key role in European integration: allowing work to be carried out in each of the Member States' languages has increased civil society participation as well as the EU's democratic legitimacy.


This exhibition consists of 25 posters that celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most visionary agenda for women's rights and empowerment across the world. It highlights struggles for gender equality and women's rights in Europe, the United States of America, Canada, the Caucasus and Central Asia.
