COVID-19 Updates, FAQs and Resources
Last updated: July 22, 2022
The global COVID-19 pandemic is compelling organizations like OAC to focus on the essentials of what they do and to engage those strengths to make a difference. OAC supports the diversity and vitality of the arts in every corner of the province, ensuring the value of the arts to Ontario’s cultural life. In this time of great disruption and uncertainty for the arts sector, we are:
to the artists and arts organizations we support. We understand the pressures they are experiencing right now and we will not add to those challenges.
with as much flexibility as possible, adjusting our policies, processes and programs to help the arts sector navigate the challenges they are facing.
and advocating for artists and arts organizations through this difficult time. We’re closely monitoring the impacts of the situation and exploring additional ways to sustain the sector.
We are excited to invite you to the online launch of Reset. Renew. Revitalize. A Strategic Plan for the Ontario Arts Council 2022–2027.
Congratulations to Kelly Langgard, Director of Granting, who has announced her departure from OAC to become the next Director & CEO of the Toronto Arts Council and Toronto Arts Foundation.
