About this Session
Working with other organizations to support artists during a time of crisis can go a long way in keeping a local public art ecosystem healthy and vibrant. In this session, attendees will learn about how one such partnership was utilized to pivot large, capital projects into localized investments to support artists during an economic crisis.
