Digitalisation in the music sector: a lifeline during the 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.


With the launch of the virtual video exhibition “Voices of Violence” by the Danish Cultural Institute, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) is providing a space where the frightening real-life stories of female survivors of violence can be told and heard, with listening and understanding being the first steps towards action and change.
