Did COVID Kill or Cure Digital Arts?

Mar 16, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

The shutdown of live arts and culture during the pandemic forced the sector to rethink how it operates in the digital space. But did the arts make the most of the COVID moment? Did they reach new audiences, or just retain their existing in-person audience? Did reliance on public funds and philanthropy limit the motivation to explore new digital revenue streams? What truly innovative work was created? And what are the success stories of the pivot to digital? Join leading industry professionals for a frank and forward-looking appraisal of the state of digital arts after COVID.
