The coronavirus pandemic has shuttered arts and cultural centers and cut off employment opportunities for creative workers across the globe. Yet in this time of global need, the value of creativity and expression is heightened. Many arts organizations have responded to the crisis by providing free shows, concerts, art tutorials, and performances for stay-at-home viewers. Global Citizen brought together 70 musical acts and performances on Saturday, April 18 to raise $127.9 million to benefit the World Health Organization (WHO) and local and regional responders to COVID-19. How can creative workers and organizations continue to provide services in a time of fiscal uncertainty? Join us for a dynamic panel discussion with New York City Arts arts leaders on how the local sector is responding and what it will take to revitalize the sector post-pandemic.
