Cultural organizations have faced unique challenges during the last two years of the pandemic. Income from admissions disappeared as organizations closed their doors. Adapting to online offerings had unseen challenges and didn’t replace the income from visitors. Some institutions were forced to lay off staff, losing institutional memory, and faced a historically difficult labor market as they reopened. Join us as the heads of the New England Aquarium, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Massachusetts Historical Society reflect on the difficulties experienced by cultural institutions of varying sizes and purposes throughout COVID-19.
The in-person reception starts at 5:30 and the program will begin at 6:00.
The virtual program begins at 6:00 PM and will be hosted on the video conference platform, Zoom. Registrants will receive a confirmation message with attendance information.
