Recovering Arts Audiences in a Post-COVID World

Beza Tessema ’24, a 2022 1stGenYale Summer Bulldogs intern, presented the results of surveys she conducted with leaders of nonprofit theaters and musical organizations about recovering audiences in a post-pandemic world. The event, held both virtually and in person at the Yale Club of New York City, also featured a roundtable discussion by several arts administrators: Regina Bain ’98, ’01 MFA, director of the Louis Armstrong Museum; Linda Chin ’81, musical theatrical producer; and Chiara Klein, director of the Public Theatre.

The presentation was co-sponsored by the Casement Fund, the Yale Alumni Nonprofit Alliance, and the New York Film & Music Foundation.
