As we all begin to face the current health pandemic, COVID-19, performing artists and the entertainment industry are forced to make difficult choices and deal with drastic cuts to income due to cancelled live gatherings.
I’ve received some helpful information from various arts advocacy organizations who are addressing this on behalf of the performing arts community. I am sharing this information with you so that you are up to date with resources and thoughtful ideas of how to navigate this challenge.
Folk Alliance in collaboration with The Alliance of Performing Arts Conferences, have offered the following resources and are hosting a live webinar
Town Hall Wednesday, March 18 from 3 – 4 pm Eastern
We invite everyone to join an important “town hall” advocacy webinar
Wednesday, March 18 at 3 p.m. (EDT) entitled “We Are Stronger Together: Navigating the Coronavirus”
Sign up it is free, but you must sign up.

I hope this information give you a start to some collaborative resources as a performing artist facing this crisis. I’ll have more information for you as it unfolds and is available as well as some creative suggestions you might implement.
