Boulder Arts Showcase: COVID-19 Work Projects
November 10 to December 22, 2022
In this month’s episode of Boulder Arts Showcase on the City of Boulder’s Boulder 8TV, watch a set of artist interviews from the Creative Neighborhood: COVID-19 Work Projects. In 2020, the Office of Arts and Culture and Create Boulder launched the Creative Neighborhood: COVID-19 Work Projects to support artists and bolster the “social infrastructure” of our community. In the spirit of the Work Projects Administration of the 1930s, the program quickly delivered funding to artists who had lost gigs, had contracts or events canceled, been laid off, or have otherwise been put in a vulnerable position due to the necessary restrictions to control the COVID-19 Pandemic. At the same time, the projects leveraged the talent of artists to unite and vitalize our neighborhoods with the goal of either a) helping their neighbors stay connected during the restrictions, or b) after restrictions are lifted, helping people to reconnect, recover and adjust to new social conditions. Sixty-six projects were funded in 2020. Artists whose disciplines range from contemporary dance to visual art developed new work directly in response to the pandemic experience.
