Coronavirus Arts Hub

ArtsWave joins you in concern for the health of our schools, workplaces, families and our community. Part of this community are the arts organizations, artists and arts & culture workers that contribute to Greater Cincinnati’s economic vibrancy and social connectivity. They are facing the double-whammy of complete loss of earned income from tickets, tours and school groups PLUS the possible shortfall of contributions to the ArtsWave Community Campaign. With audience and performance limitations still in effect, your gift to ArtsWave matters more than everPlease give today

In moments of crisis and stress, we can find courage, inspiration, hope and camaraderie in the arts — music, theater, dance, festivals, museums and more. Cincinnati arts are eager for you to resume participating in their activities as soon as it's safe to do so. In the meantime, we hope these mindful moments make a different kind of impact. Enjoy, and be well.

Arts Vibrancy Recovery Fund

ArtsWave is working to keep the pilot light on for local arts organizations, which have experienced devastating losses from months of closures. Contributions to the Arts Vibrancy Recovery Fund will shore up our major cultural assets, enable smart restructuring and new ways of doing business, invest in innovative new audience connections, and lift up diverse voices in the arts. These are the areas where investment today will make arts organizations more resilient and ready to welcome you back in the days ahead.

Gifts will be matched 2:1 in order to ensure that arts institutions remain viable through these prolonged months of closure.

Together we can fund the arts and fuel Cincinnati’s future. Thank you for your support.
