The performing arts industry has been thoroughly upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, with venues shut down, performances canceled, and artists out of work. A Brookings Institution report issued last summer estimated the damage in the fine and performing arts at almost 1.4 million jobs and $42.5 billion in sales lost.
What does the future look like?
Will audiences come back?
How will the experience of the arts have changed after COVID?
Facing these and other pressures, how will performing artists and institutions adapt?
With vaccines now becoming available and an end to pandemic restrictions on the horizon, the Peabody Institute will convene arts industry leaders to explore the path forward for artists and organizations and the long-term, post-COVID landscape for the performing arts.
Join us for a free virtual symposium featuring leaders in the performing arts industry discussing the impact of the pandemic and the long-term implications and opportunities for artists and organizations on February 10, 2021.
