HowlRound and a group of artists, arts administrators, and others from around the U.S. will gather online Monday, March 16, at 8:00 pm EST to discuss how COVID-19 is impacting freelance artists from all disciplines, and where artists can look for support in this complicated moment.
The conversation, livestreamed on HowlRound TV and ASL and captioned, will focus on shared resources (legal, advocacy, taking your work virtual, finding emergency funding, and financial best practices in crises) and building and grounding a national community.
