Kia ora koutou. I read a message from DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland with deep interest today. You will already be aware through your own reading and contacts of the issues for artists and arts and entertainment organisations in countries most affected by COVID-19. There are interesting comparisons for counterparts in New Zealand, which has a different arts infrastructure but similar issues.
I look for hope on the horizon and how to think smart in a period of uncertainty. So I was heartened by this key point in the message from Michael Kaiser, Chair, and Brett Egan, President.
