Seattle Chamber: Road to Recovery - Arts & Culture
Seattle Chamber's Executive Speaker Series: Road to Recovery - Arts & Culture
10/28/20201:09:43

Arts and cultural organizations in our region have been hard hit by the economic impacts of COVID-19, since they have been unable to safely perform or gather patrons in their spaces. At the start of the pandemic in March, unemployment claims in the arts and culture sector increased by over 2,000%, and it is estimated that our local organizations will lose tens of millions of dollars this year. But there is hope ahead, with updated guidance for museum openings and virtual options from arts organizations that are getting creative around their upcoming seasons. Produced by the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce.

Speakers include:

Amanda Cruz, Director & CEO, Seattle Art Museum

Michael Greer, President & CEO, ArtsFund

Krishna Thiagarajan, President & CEO, Seattle Symphony and Benaroya Hall

Randy Engstrom, Director, City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, moderator
