Event Information:

Join us for our next FREE webinar on Tapping American Rescue Plan (ARP) State and Local Block Grants for the Arts on Wednesday, May 26, 2021 from 3:00-4:30pm ET. Last week, the U.S. Department of Treasury released guidelines to state and local governments on how to use an unprecedented $350 billion in federal funds to help turn the tide on the pandemic, address its economic fallout, and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable recovery. This webinar will help demonstrate how the arts and culture fit into these guidelines and include examples of governments already committing funds to support the arts and culture. We are pleased that the panel will explore both perspectives, not only from the arts side, but also from the city/county/state government side.

  • Tad McGalliard, Director, Research and Development at ICMA, the City/County Managers Association, Washington, DC
  • Alecia Kintner, President & CEO at ArtsWave, Cincinnati, OH
  • Jenni Petersen-Brant, Arts & Cultural Affairs Coordinator; City of Dubuque, IA
