The State of the Sector Through the Early Stages of the Pandemic

Since early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the arts and cultural sector nationwide. It's estimated that 90% of cultural organizations canceled at least some of their programming and as a result, ticket revenue and donations have seen drastic changes. 

In this series of webinars, Dr. Zannie Voss takes a deep-dive look into the arts and cultural landscape of several regions from pre-pandemic into the early impact of COVID-19. These data-driven findings can be used to better understand and tell the story of how your organization fared throughout the crisis and help to inform funders where support may be needed now.
