Puget Sound Regional Council Arts and Culture Economic Recovery Plan
Seattle, WA / 2022
Project completed while at BERK Consulting
Following work with ArtsFund to describe the vital role that arts and culture play in community and the threat that Covid-19 and associated policy measures posed to the future of arts and culture; Vivien led the development of the Arts and Culture Economic Recovery Strategy with the Puget Sound Regional Council. As the regional economic development organization PSRC provides a venue for Puget Sound partners to align efforts in support of organizations and workers in arts and culture in post-pandemic recovery. Vivien facilitated a regional arts and cultural advisory group, led a survey of cultural workers and qualitative data collection, and integrated regional economic data analysis to develop a recovery plan. The resulting plan and recommended actions address critical issues facing the cultural economy and continue to call for more sustainable and equitable support.
