The current pandemic has affected all of us immensely. Artists and Arts Organizations in particular have been hit hard, and are having to navigate a new and uncertain landscape, while they “just keep going” and work to execute their mission and support their communities.Today’s session features case studies from three organizations in South Dakota who have each had to respond to the challenges and opportunities in different ways. The three presenters, each leading their arts organization through these changes, will share their collective stories of what has happened and how they are adapting to the new realities, followed by a joint Q&A session and panel discussion about how we can all move forward together.
