During the darkest days of the pandemic, as our worlds became smaller, the arts helped connect us and bring us joy. Whether strolling a museum gallery virtually from the comfort of your couch, binge-watching Netflix, or taking in a concert live-streamed from your favorite artist’s living room, the arts in all forms helped bring a sense of normalcy and connection in a time marked quite literally by lack of human contact.

Yet while the arts continue to help us through these unprecedented times, COVID-19 has presented extraordinary challenges to Long Island’s previously thriving arts community. What does the future look like? Join us for an intimate discussion with Alan Inkles, Director, Staller Center for the Arts at Stony Brook University, and William R. Biddle, Executive Director, Tilles Center for the Performing Arts – LIU Post. How can arts organizations sustain their critical work in the face of slashed budgets and the cancelation of entire seasons of events? Learn how organizations are collaborating to stay true to their missions and how they are adapting in ways that seemed unthinkable just a few months ago.

As always, Joe and Peter will also discuss the latest business recovery and market updates.
