2021 Annual Meeting

The past 18 months have tested us individually, organizationally and as a sector, but we continue to push forward together as a community. Although we’re once again gathering virtually, we will take this moment to reflect on how our resilient industry continues to be as vibrant as ever.

During this year’s Annual Meeting, we presented results of our Fall 2021 COVID-19 Impact Study as well as other insights from our research from the past year. Members heard from the incoming president of the Cultural Alliance, Patricia Wilson Aden, before she officially begins her role in January 2022.

Together we are Always an Alliance: Vibrant. Collaborative. Resilient.

If you are able, please consider a $15 donation to support the Cultural Alliance and our mission. Membership dues are only a small portion of our budget. Support from individuals enables us to advocate, research and promote on behalf of our members and the wider arts and culture sector.
