Join us on December 20th at 1:00 pm for a discussion around other, less traditional sources of revenue. We will be looking at endowments, how they can be set up, and the kind of annual revenue they can generate; online revenue-generating programming that can last beyond the pandemic; and how merchandise might help close the gap left by partial-capacity halls and smaller ticket sales.

This monthly webinar series will provide a community forum throughout the fall. We will hear from guest arts leaders who are tackling these challenges, then open the floor to create space for questions, conversations and success sharing. What programming considerations are being made? What's being communicated to audiences? What's being done in venues to ensure safety? How do masks and vaccines impact plans and policies? How can we learn from each other as we navigate this shifting new reality?
