About the Member Briefing
As schools across the country navigate how to reopen safely, several arts organizations have already faced their first reopening test: summer arts camps. The ArtsCenter in Chapel Hill, NC and Burlington City Arts in Burlington, VT share their experiences with reopening their summer programs, including safety of staff and students, lack of clarity about liability, parent perceptions and demand, and financial viability.
