In line with New York City’s efforts to ‘flatten the incubation curve’ of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), Brooklyn Arts Council has temporarily closed our DUMBO offices to the public and is taking full advantage of our existing remote work policies. We are postponing any trainings, workshops, and creative gatherings, effective March 16 through April 20, or as deemed vital by municipal leadership.
While we are not together in person, Brooklyn Arts Council staff is here to serve you. We have compiled a list of resources and developed a survey to assess artists’ needs.
Over the past week, we’ve heard from Brooklyn artists who are increasingly concerned about the impact the ongoing pandemic will have on their creative practices and their families of birth and choice.
The team at Brooklyn Arts Council put our heads together to create a digital booklet of resources on healthcare, newly available funding, organizing tips, and entertainment resources — all with our borough’s artists in mind.
Did we miss something?
Let us know. In addition to our Resource Guide, we’ve created a COVID-19 Impact Survey to take inventory of Brooklyn artists’ most pressing needs and concern. We understand that many aspects of work and life are shifting right now. Any answers you can give at this time will inform our future approach to ensuring Brooklyn artists have what they need to thrive.
