Coronavirus & the Arts

Information & Resources to Help Arts Organizations Navigate the Covid Pandemic

What policies are being adopted across the state that effect the arts and culture sector? Is my organization making the most informed decisions based on all the ever-changing guidelines? What are our neighboring organizations' policies on capacity this month? There are so many questions we all have with the same underlying agenda, to keep our patrons safe and continue our mission. 


Tennesseans For The Arts is adopting a new initiative to keep Tennessee Arts Organizations informed. There is no right answer, but we think knowing what other organizations are doing can prove helpful and empowering. 

Please fill out our short Covid Questionnaire and join the effort to share the steps you are taking to stay open, protect your audiences and staff, all while following health guidelines. This questionnaire is for any Tennessee arts organization, big or small. TFTA Members who participate will have a link directing viewers to their website. If you are not a member, please consider joining our efforts to protect the Arts in Tennessee. Become a Member Today.
