"Planning events & connecting communities & artists during the pandemic" will be the topic of the Vermont Recreation & Park Association’s quarterly meeting at 9 a.m., March 10 via Zoom.
The session will feature panelists from Vermont's Dept. of Health; Agency of Commerce & Community Development (ACCD); Forests, Parks, & Recreation; the Vermont Arts Council, as well as Jody Fried from Catamount Arts and Sherri Birkheimer Rooker from the Chaffee Art Center.
Panelists will discuss managing outdoor events during the pandemic. They will share examples that worked in 2020, share plans and possible venues for 2021, discuss public health updates and recommendations, and hear from ACCD on guidance updates for the upcoming summer. We will also outline and discuss a new initiative in the works to help artists and communities facilitate safe outdoor events this upcoming season.
