GHAC + Covid-19

Artists, educators, facilitators, entrepreneurs, communicators, administrators, change-makers – we’re in this together. 

⁠We’re doing all that we can to gather support for the capital region’s arts and culture sector and continue to be a resource for artists and organizations. We will be regularly updating this page with links for artists, organizations, and families looking for resources.
