On Friday, March 13, 2020, Teaching Artists Guild joined with the Association of Teaching Artists, the National Guild for Community Arts Education, Creative Generation, NYC Arts in Education Roundtable and the Teaching Artists of the Mid-Atlantic to present a webinar for teaching artists bracing for the impact of COVID-19 on the United States.

During the webinar, many excellent resources were shared by panelists and participants alike, and there were numerous requests for a “master list” to be collected and published for the benefit of everyone in the field.

On this page, we have published the recording of that nation-wide webinar (the transcript of that webinar is available for download here), as well as our master list of resources, and a form that will allow you to submit more resources for the benefit of the community.

This list and this web-page are a work in progress. If you have suggestions on how we can improve this page, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
