Click on the header to find a sampling of the messages (via email and website) that WI's arts organizations have begun to send to their patrons, partners, audience members, and community stakeholders. We provide these as a way of helping others to shape a response to this public health issue, not to endorse any specific action.
For those who have not yet communicated with your partners, patrons, audience members, and community stakeholders, here are a couple of sample templates that have come our way. We share them for your consideration, without recommending either course. Sample Templates

IF YOUR WAB-FUNDED PROJECT HAPPENS DURING COVID-19 TIME
If you have a WAB grant to support a program or event taking place during this time of increased concern, we will allow you to postpone and reschedule, and will if necessary extend the grant project period. Be sure to contact WAB staff via email to alert us to the changes.
As we continue to watch and prepare for the coming weeks, we will be tracking local response and welcome your questions – as will our partner in the private sector, Arts Wisconsin. During times like this, we must act in concert with one another and support each other locally, statewide, and nationally.
Please be safe, protect yourself and those you interact with, and be healthy. Most importantly, thank you, as always, for all the extraordinary things you do every day.
