Message from EC3

The Board and staff of EC3 send out our encouragement to all members of the Peterborough Arts, Culture and Heritage community during the COVID-19 crisis. You are all on our minds. This webpage is meant to be an arts, culture, and heritage sector focused resource centre to help you through these uncertain times.

We continue to monitor the evolving situation and the impact it is having and will continue to have, on both individual artists and cultural organizations in Peterborough and the surrounding region. We are working with all three levels of government on relief and recovery initiatives and with a wide variety of non-governmental and not-for-profit service organizations, contributing ideas and information on several response efforts. We have spoken to many of you individually and heard your concerns; we share your worries.

EC3 is rolling out a number of financial and service relief and recovery programs over the next two weeks, so please monitor this website, as well as our Facebook page@ElectricCityCC on Twitter, Insta, and our latest COVID-19 Bulletins.

This is a time when the arts are in high demand to provide comfort, creativity and connectedness, and we want to thank all of you for the virtual events and activities you are providing for the community. EC3 has initiated several communications strategies to remind people how crucial the arts are to our community’s health and wellbeing.

Please be sure to track your income loss and the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on your organizations as of March 1, 2020. Funders need solid information to develop relief and recovery programs. In order to help us advocate on your behalf, we highly encourage you to participate in the COVID-19 Impact Survey for Arts, Culture, and Tourism worker from ArtsPond/Étang d’Arts + I Lost My Gig Canada.

For detailed information on financial assistance please review the details in our Bulletins and the Quick Links on the right side of this page, as well as information on the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB), tax season information from the Canada Revenue Agency, updates to the Canada Summer Jobs program, and the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy.

Be safe, stay healthy, and please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
