The new music community has taken a huge financial and emotional hit due to COVID-19. As a performing arts non-profit organization that employs many freelance musicians and navigates relationships between individual and institutional funders, the International Contemporary Ensemble would like to take a moment to gather together with our community and discuss the state of our field. How can we build coalitions to advocate for the arts sector nationwide? How can we all be resources for each other? How do artists shift from a live stage to a virtual one?

Ruby Lopez Harper, Senior Director of Local Arts Advancement at Americans for the Arts, will kick off the call by sharing what she’s seeing from a national perspective and to offer guidance on ways we can respond individually, institutionally, and collectively to support our arts ecosystem. This will also be a chance for us to share what's coming up creatively that's promising from this COVID time, to share resources that we're all reading about that could lift up the whole community, and to share some ideas for how the International Contemporary Ensemble can be more of a resource to the new music community.
