The arts are in danger. We can’t lose them now!

The arts allow people to escape their challenging realities. It enriches our communities and provides individuals with a sense of belonging – it unites us all. 

Small performing arts organizations across Canada have been hit hard by COVID-19.  Entire seasons have been cancelled, educational programs have been indefinitely postponed, and some theatres have closed their doors forever.

Reimagining artistic expression

Recreating performances and educational programming is crucial to the survival of the arts, such as choirs and symphonies, our dance companies, and our theatres. That’s why organizations are finding new ways to deliver their services in a COVID-friendly while preparing for a full return to in-person viewing. 

They are working hard to come back stronger than before.
