COVID-19 Relief for Performing Artists, Arts Workers, And Arts Organizations
Join Arts Midwest and the Alliance of Performing Arts Conferences* for an upcoming free webinar “Putting the Puzzle Together: COVID-19 Relief for Performing Artists, Arts Workers, And Arts Organizations” Tuesday, April 14th at noon (CST).
The CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Response, and Economic Security Act) was signed into law on March 27, promising to deliver $2 trillion in relief via small business loans, paid leave, pandemic unemployment assistance, and other benefits. This government relief is as unprecedented as the crisis itself and equally complex to manage. Most importantly for you—-performing artists, arts workers, and arts organizations—-the relief provisions are challenging to understand and proving even more so access, just when you need the relief most. Our expert panelists will help create clarity out of the confusion, offer direction, highlight other financial relief resources, and provide encouragement to keep us moving forward.
