We need the soothing, motivating, and mind- and soul-clarifying power of the arts to help us get us through this crisis – but the arts are in critical danger right now.In addition to an update on federal COVID-19 policy impacting nonprofits, we explore the current arts landscape with Americans for the Arts, strategies they’re using to tune policymakers into the needs of our nation’s artists and art institutions, and the importance of advocating on their behalf. What they’ve learned can help you elevate the needs of other communities and subsectors that may not be in the headlines, but are suffering nonetheless.
Included below are examples of research, education, and advocacy resources deployed by Americans for the Arts during the pandemic to support their constituents and help the sector, public, and policymakers learn about their needs.
