Covid-19 Response

Humanities Kansas responded to the Covid-19 pandemic with resources to support local cultural organizations. 

Kansas Arts & Culture Survey

HK and its statewide partners are working to measure the ongoing impact of the coronavirus on our state’s arts and cultural organizations.

Key Findings of the January 2021 Kansas Arts & Culture Survey

  • The Kansas Arts and Culture Sector has experienced a significant financial impact as a result of the pandemic and assistance will be needed.

  • The COVID pandemic may lead to a shrinking of the Kansas Arts and Culture Sector which will have a ripple effect on Kansas communities 

  • Organizations and individuals are pivoting, adapting, and building on their strengths, but flexibility varies and training is needed.
