Podcast: Cultural policies in the digital age

We are pleased to present the latest instalment of UNESCO’s Culture Sector podcast, Talking about Culture. In this episode, Danielle Cliche, Secretary of the 2005 Convention, and Octavio Kulesz, member of the 2005 Convention Expert Facility and one of the authors behind the 2018 Global Report “Re|Shaping Cultural Policies”, reveal how the digital revolution has fundamentally transformed how artists make, distribute and are compensated for their work.

They also explore how UNESCO and its Member States have sought to ensure that all artists can benefit from the potential of digital technologies, as well as the potential effects of artificial intelligence on the cultural and creative industries. You can listen to this thought-provoking discussion below.
