The Covid-19 pandemic brought unexpected and new challenges for local communities in almost every field of their lives. Specifically, because of lockdown restrictions and measures, cultural activities needed to be rethought. The aim of CRESTART is to map the cultural changes observed before and after the Covid-19 pandemic in certain dimensions of the institutional and national culture of the participating countries. The project will develop and share a participatory and user-friendly toolkit for strengthening the creativity and innovativeness of local communities on how to successfully tackle similar challenges and reduce cultural risks.
