Due to the COVID-19 outbreak's impact on the arts and cultural community in Montgomery County, the Culture Spotlight will shift its focus away from promoting public events and programs to promoting opportunities for virtual engagement with the cultural community and avenues to support arts and cultural organizations and practitioners negatively affected by the epidemic through April 2, 2020.
Though you may not be able to attend events for a few weeks, you can still help ensure they will continue to happen in the future. Rather than requesting a refund, please consider donating the cost of the tickets for cancelled events to the affected organization. These small efforts help support our local cultural community as they navigate severe losses in revenue and increased costs from the current health and financial crises.
Thank you for your commitment to supporting the arts and humanities, your ability to stay invested and engaged in times of crisis, and your compassion for our shared community.
