Arts Reopening Guide
For Indiana Arts Venues / Organizations in Response
to COVID-19

The arts sector depends on consumption of its product by large groups of people, almost always through large single gatherings. The reality is that normal operations will not be possible in response to COVID-19 under the recommendations of medical professionals and government officials.

Our state and nation depend on the arts sector for quality of life, economic growth, community development, entertainment, and education. Additionally, there are tens of thousands employed in the arts sector. Each of those individuals has been affected by COVID-19’s impact on the industry. The best way to get arts employees back to work is for arts venues to reopen - and to reopen safely.
Dlsclaimer: This document is not meant to imply that all arts venues or programs should be open by a certain time, nor is it intended to require changes in operation. This document should not be misconstrued as legal advice, nor legal justification for reopening.

The reopening of any arts venue, program, experience, office, studio, gallery, or any other facility, program, or product, is ultimately the sole decision, and responsibility, of the leaders of a given arts entity. Adherence to all local, state, or federal laws, orders, guidelines, codes, or other regulation is the responsibility of individual entities and is assumed in this document.
