Coronavirus and the Arts: Resources and Updates

Last updated April 17, 2020.

Since early March our team has been working to assemble information for artists, arts organizations, educators, and other folks who work in the arts to access as they navigate this uncertain time. We hope the information provided below.

Please reach out with questions or with ideas on information you think we should include.

For COVID-19 information please visit the Rhode Island Department of Health.

If you have any resources you think should be added to this page, please email Todd Trebour, Organizations Program Director:

Working with RISCA.

Please visit our Working with RISCA blog for updated information from our team.

What will happen to my grant?

We understand the need to be flexible. If your RISCA-supported grant for a program or event is schedule during this time we are allowing for postponement and rescheduling. If necessary RISCA will also extend the grant project period. Please contact your program director via email to alert them to the changes.

If you’ve received Big Yellow School Bus or Arts Talk funding and the event is cancelled, please contact Maggie Anderson at
