New Online Resource Guide Promotes Local Artists and Cultural Organizations
Creative Greensboro, the City’s office of arts and culture, and the nonprofit ArtsGreensboro, are working together to promote streaming programs, virtual tours, and other interactive online activities that local artists, creative professionals, and arts and cultural organizations are producing while people are practicing social distancing.

Organizations and individuals can submit streaming events or other opportunities at at the Creative Greensboro website. The first issue will be published Monday, April 6.
“The need for people to stay-at-home during this global pandemic has forced a wave of cancelations of performances, classes, and rehearsals, and shuttered places like museums and galleries. Yet Greensboro creatives have quickly responded by moving their work online. At this critical time, we want to support that work and connect them with the community,” said Ryan Deal, City chief creative economy officer and head of Creative Greensboro.
Submissions must be in by 9 am to make it in that day’s edition of the Greensboro At Home Arts and Creativity Guide. All weekend activities will run in Friday’s edition.
