COVID-19 ResourcesOur response during the global pandemic.
We have postponed our public events through May 15, due to the increasing number of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases worldwide. More about this decision. During this time of social distancing, we are meeting our mission by sharing videos, podcasts, and online resources. And be sure to join in on the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
Times are hard, but your investment in our work shows that you understand the important roles that literature, history, art, religion, philosophy, and ethics play in our daily life and in our struggle to live up to the ideals of our democracy.
Vermont Humanities and the Vermont Arts Council have now distributed $517,500 in emergency relief grants to 81 different Vermont cultural organizations, including museums, libraries, performing arts venues, and other cultural centers.
More than 100 museums, performing arts venues, libraries and other cultural centers have applied for emergency relief grants.
Vermont Humanities and Vermont Arts Council to Aid Arts and Humanities Organizations with COVID-19 Relief
Arts and humanities organizations in Vermont facing hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic can now apply for emergency relief funding through a new partnership between Vermont Humanities and the Vermont Arts Council.
Along with the Vermont Arts Council, we would like to document the financial distress that cultural organizations and individuals are currently experiencing. Please fill out the Americans for the Arts survey.
Our current situation is not one of our choosing. And we know that this is a very stressful moment for many in our community. But it may be time to sit quietly and take a moment to reflect, especially for those of us with the option to do so.
Because Vermont Humanities partners with dozens of libraries, schools, and community centers around our state to present over 800 events each year, we will work closely with our presenting partners to monitor the situation with COVID-19 in Vermont.
