About the Handbook
The COVID-19 Handbook for the Creative Sector provides information on public health, relief and recovery throughout the COVID-19 crisis. It is written for the broad range of workers, business owners and managers, audiences, donors, funders and partners who comprise the creative sector in Puget Sound, including but not limited to those working in music, sound, entertainment, theater, dance, film, photography, interactive media, lighting, videography, design, fashion, production, architecture, crafts and creative retail, culture, museums, galleries, performing arts, festivals, venues, and events.
The Handbook is intended to consolidate and/or coordinate with other information resources for the creative sectors, including resource efforts by other government agencies, nonprofit service providers and grassroots collectives who have formed during this time at the local and statewide levels to ensure mutual aid and universal access to resources.
The Handbook is published by Fife Consulting and is supported primarily through funding and partnership from King County Creative, 4Culture and the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. Some of the people who have contributed to the project include Caroline Dodge, Sandy Esene, Andy Fife, Jaeeun Kim, Leigh Sims and Aaron Starkey.
