Americans For The Arts is hosting a couple webinars to help the arts community deal with the situation surrounding Covid-19.
It appears that both will be archived for those who can’t watch live. If you follow the links in the titles, you can register to participate.
I have seen the link to this first meeting shared by multiple groups so it is likely to be heavily attended.

As a result, the performing arts presenting, booking and touring industry is navigating uncharted waters, as we look to both contracts—and to each other—for direction. Join the partners of the Alliance for Performing Arts Conferences (APAC)*, as we host an informative, field-wide conversation with presenters, agents, artists, and legal and emergency response experts around the current business, legal, financial, ethical and relational realities we are facing TOGETHER.
The second webinar appears to be more focused on organizational plans and policies during the crisis, including providing support for staff and others who may be experiencing anxiety.
