Tuscarawas Arts Partnership: Artists Thrive 2021

May, 2021

The Tuscarawas Arts Partnership continues to support its community of creatives in the Dover, Ohio area through innovative Artists Thrive programming, and in 2021, Elaine will join the community for two workshops, including one on Arts Funding and the COVID-19 Pandemic.

About the Workshop

Pop Quiz: Who funds the arts in the United States? If you said a complex web of federal, state, and local resources, supplemented by individual contributions and purchases, you’d be exactly right. And if you quickly realized all of those sources are under financial stress right now, you’d be even more correct.


As the economy and the arts industry grapple with major financial challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is worth understanding the funding landscape in detail. As part of this workshop, we’ll:

  • Review the typical funding structure of an organization in the United States and the COVID-19 impact on those structures.
  • Review the financial impact faced by artists as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Strategize actionable solutions to very big financial problems.

Timing Details

The workshop will take place on Saturday, May 1, 2021 via Zoom from 10:00-12:00 ET.
