New normal for art and international mobility in a new reality


The COVID 19 pandemic has not only affected societal and economic structures
at a global level, but has also had a great impact on our personal lives.
The arts and international mobility fields are no exception to that impact,
and they are now faced with a new reality.

Our lives are filled with uncertainty. Meanwhile, there are ongoing considerations
for various methods and policies that will help us return to our normal lives,
whatever that normal might be, and welcome the return of theaters and festivals.
At the same time, due to the lockdown of cities and borders and social distancing practices,
we have realized that returning to the normality we knew before is impossible.
And so, we are presented with the fundamental questions of
what the arts are and what the role of the arts is,
particularly as a sustainable platform for international mobility.

At the PAMS 2020, we will discuss <Resilience and Recovery> to
cope with this new reality and <Re-Imagination and Innovation>
of the arts and international mobility in preparation for a new
normal of coexistence with the virus Pandemic time.
