COVID-19 Resources
COVID-19 Resources
IPAY has been working internally and with our partners at APAC* to meet the needs of our touring communities during the pandemic that has rocked our sector. APAC has been offering weekly resource driven webinars, meanwhile IPAY has rolled out our own programming, such as virtual Kitchen Tables, an international Resources List, and other opportunities to share and connect with each other. IPAY offers you these community resources to support your work.
IPAY Webinars provide valuable development learning, education about our programs, and engaging conversation about the future of performing arts for young audiences. We have designed four new webinar series; Global Resources, Continuing the Conversation, Up Close and Personal, and Calm in the Chaos in order to bring our community deeper connection, inspiration, and the space to think critically about what's next for the touring and producing of performance for young audiences amid the global pandemic of COVID-19.
