Forum Friday: Pandemic Recovery in Wisconsin’s Arts and Cultural Sector

By Jeffrey Schmidt

Pandemic Recovery in Wisconsin’s Arts and Cultural Sector

Virtual event | July 29, 2022 | 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

Our July 29 Forum Friday event centered on Wisconsin’s arts and cultural sectors, and how they are faring two years after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We started with an overview of recent Forum research on employment in the arts and culture sectors and the threats they have been facing. We then brought in our Forum Friday guests for a discussion about the arts and cultural sector statewide and in the Milwaukee region

Helping us explore these issues were our Forum Friday guests: David Lee, CEO, Imagine MKE; Patrick Rath, President and CEO, United Performing Arts Fund; George Tzougros, Executive Director, Wisconsin Arts Board.

During Forum Fridays, we discuss a timely research topic and invite notable guests and Forum members to join the conversation. We hope this can be another way to keep you informed and connected on our state’s most pressing public policy issues. Stay tuned for more Forum Friday events in the near future!
