ArtsBoston is at the center of reopening planning for Greater Boston’s arts and cultural community. We’ve gathered these resources for you about public health protocols at live performances around the region, updated arts news, and tools to help you feel ready for your next arts experience.
As arts and cultural organizations are re-opening with COVID safety protocols, we know there are many questions about how best to communicate with the public, training front of house staff, and managing expectations with artists and production teams in real-time. On September 27, we partnered with The Huntington to share their experiences with COVID safety protocols and reopening the Calderwood Pavilion to live performances.
