On June 1, 2023, the Missouri Arts Council brought our COVID-19 Missouri ArtSafe program to a close. We developed the ArtSafe certification together with the Missouri Arts Safety Alliance, a coalition of organizations statewide, to help our community create safely, present safely, and attend safely. We ended the program following the declarations by the World Health Organization (May 5) and the Centers for Disease Control (May 11) that COVID-19 was no longer considered a global public health emergency. Our thanks to the more than 200 organizations that certified as ArtSafe! The program’s informational webinars on safety plans, public events, public relations, and staff wellness remain available on this page.
