Cultural events attracting crowds of visitors are potential high risk zones to become infected by a virus. Protective measures taken by most countries to slow down the novel corona virus include the cancellation of all cultural events, essentially bringing the cultural life of a country to a standstill. An online calendar for cultural events in Vienna is now calling for entries of cultural live events which are taking place online.
As many artists have started to stream concerts from their living rooms, or hold lectures, talks and performances online, this platform helps to get an overview of the numerous cultural activities on offer.
The initiative was started by esel.at.
