Session: This is Just Intermission
3 p.m. Tuesday, May 4
When the shutdowns came, the arts and music industries were among the first to turn off their lights and likely the last to come back. The story of the struggle has been told, notably in a survey conducted by Crosscut’s arts and culture desk, but we’ll look ahead with leaders from the creative community at a forever changed, but determined return. This conversation will be with Vivian Hua 華婷婷, Erin Johnson and Tim Lennon, and moderator and Crosscut Arts & Culture reporter Margo Vansynghel.
