Central Ohio August 2021 Event: Returning to the Arts After the Pandemic: “No Carry Out Available”

(Posted July 23, 2021)

Covid 19 has brought a plethora of major and minor changes to all parts and pieces of our communities.  None have been more negatively impactful than for the performing arts.  

Erin Blue, Executive Director at the McConnell Arts Center, will be walking us through some of the pivoting and realignments for the community arts center in Worthington. She will share how she and the MAC prepared for the uncertain return of the performing arts as the pandemic wound down.
During the Covid Disruption, there were very few ways to keep the arts alive. The arts couldn’t pivot to primarily providing carry out like many restaurants and clubs did. 

She will share some innovative approaches she has accomplished and observed both locally and nationally. 

Sign up today for this glimpse of what's happening in the arts! 

Don't delete your confirmation email when you sign up because it includes the zoom info. We'll also send you a reminder email the day before the event with the zoom info.
