This is an incredibly unsettling and difficult time for all of us.
As the public health response to COVID-19 has created unprecedented uncertainty for our city, state and nation, two things have been clear to us from the start: we are all yearn for the social and emotional connection that the arts bring to us and we are all going to need a strong artistic community to help us heal, recover, and make sense of this time.
However, it is not a foregone conclusion that our region's arts and culture ecosystem will survive the pandemic intact.
This is why Imagine MKE is committed to accelerating our work in supporting our city's arts and cultural ecosystem to ensure that that our city's artists, creatives, and arts sector does not only survive COVID19 but helps to chart the path forward after COVID19.
