Breaking News – Shuttered Venues 2/19

2/19 4:15pm: From Americans for the Arts: The Small Business Administration (SBA) posted a major development to its website today, confirming that lost “Earned Revenue” will be the measurement in determining which Priority Period an organization qualifies for in awarding Shuttered Venue Grants. This is welcome news to the nonprofit performing and presenting arts community because they will not be required to include their contributed revenue in the calculation to determine if they had at least a 90%, 70% or 25% revenue loss between April 2020 through December 2020, in comparison to 2019. Please also note, none of the federal CARES Act funds need to be included in the revenue calculations either.    Link to this chart on the SBA Shuttered Venues Site

Culture Source Hosts Advocacy Talk 3/4

The National Assembly of State Arts Agencies commissioned a new study, “Arts & Creativity Strengthen Our Nation,” a narrative and message guide that shows advocates how to make a case for public support of the arts as a core necessity. Its recommendations originate from extensive message testing and research on the values that motivate elected officials. Culture Source in Detroit is hosting a Zoom talk with Pam Brieuz, President/CEO of NASAA on Thursday, 3/4, 12-12:30pm. Registration is free – Link Here.  Study – Link Here.
