It’s been six weeks since the COVID-19 state of emergency was declared in Massachusetts and four weeks since the stay-at-home advisory went out. So much has changed. But you can still count on us to advocate for the resources you need now to get through this crisis.

Arts and culture mattered before COVID-19 and will matter long after the COVID-19 pandemic ends—which it will. In the meantime, the arts are getting us through it. In this newsletter, you’ll find examples of resilience and creativity from our community in the midst of chaos. You’ll also find details about our advocacy for including the creative sector as relief measures are developed. We’ve also provided a guide to the economic relief resources available now for artists and nonprofit cultural organizations. 

Together, we create art of all kinds. But our most valuable creation is community. As we continue to respond to COVID-19, let us keep our community front and center as we take care of ourselves and each other.
