A coalition headed by Americans for the Arts recently released the national   Covid-19 Impact Survey for Artists and Creative Workers , which found 95 percent of artists have lost income, and 62 percent have become fully unemployed since the crisis began.

With this situation ever-evolving, ArtWorks and Wave Pool wants to understand better the needs of the artists in Greater Cincinnati and have developed two ways for you to share your needs.

As part of the extension of the recently published Cincinnati Artist Report (CAR) , ArtWorks and Wave Pool are inviting artists to complete a brief survey. Your feedback will help us better create the opportunities you need during this time.

ArtsWave Coronavirus Arts Hub
As ArtsWave puts it, in moments of crisis and stress, we can find courage, inspiration, hope and camaraderie in the arts — music, theater, dance, festivals, museums and more. Cincinnati arts are eager for you to resume participating in their activities as soon as it's safe to do so. In the meantime, ArtsWave has launched its Coronavirus Arts hub, hoping these mindful moments make a different kind of impact.

Artists in all mediums are invited to join Artists Sunday, a national promotion and event encouraging consumers to shop with artists and craftsmen. It's like Black Friday, but for art. Participation is free.
