This is a funder-only discussion.
Join Media Impact Funders and Grantmakers in the Arts for a panel discussion on pandemic-era shifts to digital programming among arts and cultural organizations. This virtual conversation celebrates the release of a new report commissioned by the Wyncote Foundation and provides a chance to hear from three leaders expanding their work in the digital realm.
Listen, Learn, Connect studies the ways that arts and cultural organizations responded to COVID-19 lockdowns by foregrounding mission, emphasizing learning, experimenting with art forms and processes online, understanding audience habits, and facing the long-term challenges of digital work. Drawing from insights shared by 29 featured organizations, the report highlights opportunities for action by organizations and funders. Practical steps and recommended approaches are underpinned by the need for adaptability as the cultural sector confronts hybrid programming demands and ongoing pandemic-related uncertainties.
