Boise Arts Organizations Could Get Financial Relief From Congress
Embedded in the more than 5,000 page new COVID-19 relief bill is a provision to help support the flailing arts industry. The pandemic forced the temporary of stages in March across Idaho, putting venues, promoters and arts organizations in the most challenging financial position they’ve ever faced.
Now, 10 months into the health crisis, folks in the arts industry are still struggling. Many arts businesses and nonprofits have gone under and so many don’t know how they’ll make it through the pandemic. But our guests today are breathing a sigh of relief after the passage of the Save Our Stages Act.
