These are unprecedented times. The necessary measures taken to ease the strain of COVID-19 on our healthcare system have taken an enourmous toll on our economy, the effects of which have trickled down to impact arts organizations in an unprecedented way—we are reminded how economically connected we are. Instead of rescheduling, we have decided to bring this program to the digital world where we as a community will have to live for a while. Arts organizations will have to find a way to survive in this new space for the foreseeable future.
