COVID-19 poses unprecedented challenges across sectors. Public policies and governmental responses are in flux and changing daily. Amidst this uncertainty, educational institutions are in upheaval, and many arts organizations are closed, leaving a growing number of workers in the lurch.
In the past two weeks, we have seen artists, educators, cultural workers, and organizations come together in this unsettling moment to conceive of mutual aid strategies to soothe anxieties and promote collective action to support the wellbeing of the most vulnerable of our populations.
We have compiled a selection from the many proliferating online lists and guides in response to COVID-19 directed to artists, art educators, cultural workers, and cultural organizations. While certainly not all-encompassing, we hope that this list can direct our readers to useful resources and strategies, as the situation rapidly evolves.
