Greetings Pan Friends,

1.)    Unclear at this time.

2.)    Here in Worcester we were preparing to roll out three new calls to artists this month. We are holding until we have a better understanding on needs of our city and funding that remains. Right now our focus is on relief and support for arts , culture workers and cultural organizations.

3.)    Still, we remain committed to making art for all.

Be well,



Erin I.Williams

I realize this question might be too soon, but I'm about to teach a class to a bunch of anxious artists who are interested in hearing our best guess.  With respect to your own programs:


1)  Are funds that are already allocated for commissions going to stay in the pipeline or will they go away?


2)  Will you be issuing new RFQ's or are you getting signs that everything is on hold?


Thank you,





Lynn Basa, President
