Brighter Days are Ahead for the Arts
Early in our new normal, we made a commitment to help arts organizations consider ways to navigate the pandemic and take steps toward re-opening with success. We spent countless hours researching and analyzing hundreds of documents and articles with the goal to develop a series of observations, recommendations, and considerations for taking those steps forward. We collaborated with clients such as the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, The Nederlander Organization, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Playhouse Square, The Cleveland Orchestra, and The Straz Center for the Performing Arts to understand their decision-making processes and best practices so we could offer the best solutions for unique organizations like theirs.
The good news is brighter days are ahead for the arts. As more people are vaccinated, state-wide restrictions are thoughtfully lifted, and the public feels more confident about re-engaging with their broader communities, arts organizations can be optimistic about the future.
We have created two guides and interactive web experiences that can assist arts organizations as they move through the next stages of opening, from financial and operational insights to facilities considerations.
We’d also like to hear from you. What are your pain points? What is working? What are the innovative ways that have you kept moving forward? We welcome you on an interactive journey of discovery to learn more about our findings.
