A collaborative map to track the coronavirus policy measures

Find out what measures are taken for the cultural sector

You’ll find here the multiple measures taken to support professionals from the cultural and creative sectors in Europe and beyond during the covid-19 period. We have set up a collaborative map to collect all the measures and actions by country and on the European level. Since it is a collaborative work, both the content of this post and the map will be subject to regular updates.


Collaborate to the COVID-19 Policy Map

Do you want to add information on the map? You can participate by taking filling in our COVID19 policy measures form.



  • Trinidad Zaldivar

    Are you collecting policy measures in Latin America and the Caribbean?

    • Caroline Dedenis

      Dear Trinidad, we are collecting measures from all over the world. The idea is to use this map to collect and share information between professionals from the cultural and creative sectors. We currently mainly have measures in Europe since we principally operate in this zone. Though you are welcome to add measures for the Latin America and Caribbean and to share this map with your networks so they can add more information.

  • Marjolein

    Hi there. Very good initiative. However, how should we deal with regional policies, but also European policies? Would it be possible to make it workable in such a way that clicking a country in western Europe, for example, would give both the country’s allowances as well as the European?

    • Caroline Dedenis

      Dear Marjolein, thank you for your positive comment. We are currently creating new layers on the map to sort the measures between EU, national, regional and city levels. You will soon be able to filter the policies by enabling or masking the layers. If you know measures that are currently missing on the map and that you would like to share with us, you can get in touch with Benoît Jacquement at

  • Frans van der Leeuw

    a pity that this map is no longer accurate, a lot has been happening since your last update

    • Caroline Dedenis

      Dear Frans, thank you for your comment. Following our call for collaboration through our form, we have been working on gathering more measures and the map is being updated today accordingly. Besides our team has also been working on analysing the data in order to qualitatively update the map and share specific insights regarding the overall COVID19 policy responses. These new elements will be released in the coming weeks.
