COVID-19 Updates

Update for April 1, 2020
April 1, 2020
OAC has extended all April and May project program deadlines by two weeks so that artists and arts professionals whose lives and work are impacted by COVID-19 will have extra time to develop their applications. Whether the projects are creation, presenting or producing, we understand that they may need to be reconceptualized or adapted in light of COVID-19 effects. Please check the Grant Program Deadlines and Important Dates 2020 page for updated deadlines and reach out to the program staff if you need assistance. 
Update for March 30, 2020
March 30, 2020
OAC’s Research section is gathering information collected through surveys being conducted by Arts Service Organizations (ASOs) and others to track the effects of COVID-19. This week, OAC will undertake a mini-survey of OAC-funded organizations across all sectors to get a sense of the high-level impact figures. This will complement the more detailed work being done by the various ASOs whose surveys are naturally more specific to individual sectors. OAC will look at doing a more comprehensive analysis later in the year once we have a fuller picture of the impacts.
