How COVID is Changing the Arts and Culture in Madison with Catherine Capellaro

Join us on Tuesday, January 12 from 12:00 p.m. to 1 p.m. as Isthmus Arts and Culture Editor Catherine Capellaro discusses the financial impact of the pandemic on artists and the local arts scene. Optional networking time will take place from 11:30 a.m. to Noon. This event will be a moderated conversation between Catherine and retired Wisconsin Public Radio talk show host Joy Cardin. Your questions and experiences working in the arts or as a patron of the arts will be included.  Catherine will describe how COVID-19 has impacted the arts and artists, how the creative community is responding, and what we can do to help.  Catherine says she has made it her mission to try to elevate the voices of artists, and especially artists of color, in these challenging times.  As a performing artist herself, she is also in touch with the emotional toll of not performing or having outlets for connecting with audiences.
