EVENT - 2022 AAAE Conference

Who and How – A European-American armchair tour of COVID, resistance and resilience.
Who stepped up during Covid? How did they do it? Who created opportunity? COVID’s waves temporarily devastated entire sectors around the globe, while nationalism and a rise in authoritarianism clashed with movements to undo racism and systemic inequities. The stories that will be remembered will be who made a positive difference.  

Join Leonie Hodkevitch, writer and University lecturer in Vienna/Austria and Thessaloniki/Greece, and Dee Boyle-Clapp, artist and docent at UMass Amherst, for a miniature European-American tour of how different locales addressed the pandemic through the role of arts in helping people cope, come together, resist, and become resilient.

Date: Thursday, May 26, 2022
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT


We asked Leonie Hodkevitch, scientific coordinator of the certificate course "Cultural Management", four questions. You can watch the video here to find out more about the content and features of the postgraduate program.
