Tell Us Your Reopening Story


If you are an arts organization that has reopened or is planning to reopen, we would love to hear from you. Fill out the form below and let us know what challenges you faced or are concerned about and how you met those challenges, or are approaching them. We are looking to create a “best practices” collection of the stories you share that could potentially help other organizations facing similar obstacles. Together, we can all get through these hard times.

Possible issues you might want to discuss:

* What worked for you, what didn’t, and what recommendations would you make to other similar organizations?

* What issues came up that were unexpected and how did you handle them?

* Were you able to effectively communicate with staff, artists and your audience about safe reopening protocols?

* Where did you get information on reopening? Was local government, especially the public health office, a resource for you?
