Virtual Campaign Toolkit

We know that running an ArtsWave campaign in this current public health climate can seem difficult. However, the need for funds has never been more immediateEvery gift counts so THANK YOU for getting creative and running a virtual campaign!

COVID Campaign FAQ's

Is ArtsWave still running a campaign with the current public health crisis?
Yes! In fact, the need for funds has never been more immediate. The arts organizations, artists and arts & culture workers that contribute to Greater Cincinnati’s economic vibrancy and social connectivity 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.

I received arts tickets through the ArtsWave Campaign, are they still good?
All concerts, plays, classes and museums have been cancelled or are closed at this time. This will affect some of you who won vouchers to arts performances during our fundraising campaign.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to replace any vouchers for performances or events that are canceled. We ask for patience and understanding during these uncertain times, especially for our arts groups. Strong support for the arts keeps our community vibrant.
