On May 9, join us for an all-star panel discussion exploring how the arts have struggled, survived, and sometimes thrived during the COVID-19 pandemic. This panel features Portland, Oregon–based artists and arts administrators from different disciplines and backgrounds, coming together to discuss their experiences of how the arts have been affected by a year in pandemic lockdowns, how arts communities are adapting, and where we may go from here. Be sure to bring your questions for the Q&A!
