Recent UNESCO studies, both at the global and Southeast Asia level, have shed light on the precarity of the culture sector. The impacts of this precarity have been multiplied as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. While some governments have developed subsidy packages and schemes to support the stakeholders who have lost their income, many artists and professionals do not qualify as many of their usual jobs, primarily gigs and part-time, were not previously recognized by the systems. The activity is designed to raise awareness about the importance of socio-economic rights of artists and culture professionals and encourage policy makers to develop relevant policies for the sector to address the ongoing challenges.
