We Need Arts and Culture in Challenging Times

Updates from Oberlin Center for the Arts - as of April 1st

Together with our local and national partner organizations, Oberlin Center for the Arts has been exploring how to provide support our arts and cultural sector. We will continue to provide updates and resources throughout this time through our website and other direct communications, lending our efforts where they are needed the most.  

For Arts and Cultural Organizations

There are a number of great resources being developed by our membership organizations which provide a more thorough catalog than our listing. We have included a selection of outward links below. 

  • GrantsPlus: A great list of tools for grant-seeking and fundraising during COVID-19.

For Artists

  • Artwork Archive has put together a great resource list for grants and other support.
  • Explore available resources. See this list of resources assembled for artists in the music industry. 
  • Take a daily breather. NPR has created this series to remind us to stay calm in light of challenging times. 

For All of those Arts Lovers

Here are a few ways we can all support Lorain County's nonprofit arts and cultural sector and fuel hope and healing during this difficult time for our community, country, and the world: 

  • Creative Quarantining: Our ongoing series that provides opportunities to bring arts and culture into our homes.  
  • Advocate. Ask how you can help artists and arts organizations in your network, then take action and invite your friends to do the same. 

  • Donate. Organizations are being as flexible as possible on their ticketing policies. Consider donating your unused ticket back to the organization according to the organization's specific policies (versus requesting a refund) and making an additional donation to support their work. 

Our support for our arts and cultural organizations, artists, and others impacted must also remain strong so they can continue to strengthen our community now and into the future.
