Humanity today faces a crisis that has pushed it to its limits. The COVID-19 pandemic has not only cost countless lives but has shaken the foundations of societies around the world. Latin America and the Caribbean, and its rich culture, is also being severely affected by this situation. In the region, governments and peoples make strenuous efforts to safeguard its rich cultural heritage while using the infinite resources of creation, in all its manifestations, to mitigate the devastating effects of this pandemic.

In this section, with the invaluable support of the UNESCO Filed Offices in Latin America and the Caribbean, we have gathered information on the decisions taken in the Culture Sector in the region to protect the population from the spread of COVID-19 as well as the measures taken to mitigate the effects of the pandemic on the cultural ecosystem and protect artists and cultural workers who have suffered economically as a result. Similarly, it includes creative initiatives that have been developed so that culture continues to flourish from varied digital platforms and instruments.
