COVID-19 Information & Resources

This page is intended to offer assistance and informational resources to arts and culture organizations. Please refer to guidelines and orders issued by the Shelby County Health Department and/or the City of Memphis and Shelby County for official direction.

We know the evolving situation and decisions you have had to make continue to be extremely difficult. Getting unrestricted dollars to arts organizations and artists and serving as a resource for the arts community will remain our priority.


Artist Emergency Fund

ArtsMemphis, in partnership with Music Export Memphis, has an Artist Emergency Fund to support individuals within the sector who have lost income due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Arts Sector Support Calls

Arts & Culture Sector Collective Planning Conversations

ArtsMemphis is hosting a series of conversations for Shelby County arts and culture organization leaders so that we may collectively plan reopening schedules and safety protocols.  These conversations are intended for leadership staff and/or board members to allow for focused, specific dialogue. 

If your organization has not received the list of scheduled meetings, please contact us and we will make sure you are registered.


Updated weekly; contact ArtsMemphis if you have additions.
