The Municipality of Heraklion gave an answer to the problems from the lock-down of cultural places and events in the period of Covid-19. On March 2020, 34 performances were uploaded on the YouTube channel of Municipal Library Vikelaia “VikelaiaLibrary”. On April 2020, the second YouTube channel “Heraklion Art & Culture” of the Municipality of Heraklion was created. The videos have over 68.300 views, while the viewers from numerous countries have shown interest of the material that is uploaded in both of the channels.
Two festivals were converted to digital, "Crete a story of five plus one cultures" and "Art on the way" and 72 contracts were signed for new digital productions.
The material is expected to rise gradually until April 2021.
