Government Action/Inaction Across the Globe
10:35 am PDT / 11:35 am MDT / 12:35 pm CDT / 1:35 pm EDT
Government funding became a key factor in local venues and artists’ lives last year. Different cities, counties, and countries reacted differently — and had different infrastructures already in place or were entirely missing. Our guests will share stories of working with various government entities and how those relationships have changed over the past year — and where we need those relationships to continue to transform.
