The COVID-19 crisis has severely limited in-person visits to cultural organizations. In its early phases, many organization offered free, virtual programs. As the pandemic continues, low visitation has reduced organizations' revenue. As a result, some are developing mission-focused, socially distant programs that also generate revenue.
Our on-line panel discussion about pandemic programming focused on smaller institutions. Three cultural organizations shared how their socially distant programs fulfilled mission, reached audiences, and supported revenue.
