“LA Arts in the Age of Corona” is a twice-weekly conversation, hosted by CBMArts at CGU, with arts leaders and artists about how the current coronavirus pandemic is changing the way we work and engage with arts, culture, politics, and each other. Our aim is to bring out the stories that matter, but also to imagine how we can make LA arts and culture stronger, more resilient, and more dynamic, as we adapt to situations on the ground, in the air, and on the horizon
Please note that all conversations take place between noon and 1 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time
