Dear Community,
 
To keep our arts & culture mojo going while COVID-19 steals the show, COCA's "This Week!" newsletter content will shift. In addition to event listings and updates, you'll find links to online cultural programming, administrative resources to help artists & cultural organizations during this time, and COVID-19 updates.
 
The COCA office will remain open, and we are available via email, telephone and virtual meet-ups. All COCA services will continue, and consultations will be handled via remote meeting technology. Please send your service or meeting request directly to our COCA team member or email info@tallahasseearts.org. Staff emails are our first names @tallahasseearts.org. 
Daily updates will be available on COCA's FacebookInstagram and Twitter pages, and check our COCA Blog for industry updates coming soon. Feedback, suggestions  and requests are welcomed and can be sent to erica@tallahasseearts.org or info@tallahasseearts.org. We are finding creative options to offer you new perspectives, resources, and ideas.
 
Stay safe, make art, and we'll get through this together.

IMPORTANT: Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis, events listed on our calendar may be cancelled or postponed.  Although COCA has made efforts to update many of the listings below, you should refer to each event organizer's website or social media page for possible schedule changes and closures.
 
Please note that as of Sunday, March 13th, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states: 
 
Large events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States via travelers who attend these events and introduce the virus to new communities. Examples of large events and mass gatherings include conferences, festivals, parades, concerts, sporting events, weddings, and other types of assemblies. These events can be planned not only by organizations and communities but also by individuals.
 
Therefore, CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.
