In your opinion, what role do arts play as networks of social connections and reference points defining our identity in the current global crisis which we are undergoing?

Arvo Pärt: What is happening in the world today forces us all to make sacrifices and as if to reduce our life. In a way it is a kind of a “mega fast” for the whole world.
