The Community Outreach Committee at the Weinberg Center for the Arts has created a new initiative, The Intermission Project. This fund will provide free tickets to Weinberg Center events for first responders, healthcare workers, front-line employees and those who are struggling economically due to COVID-19.
Even though COVID-19 has shuttered theaters and live performance spaces all over the world, people are still turning to the arts for comfort in these trying times through streamed concerts and plays as well as films and television. This tells us that the arts are essential for human well-being. Supporting The Intermission Project will ensure that, when the doors to the Weinberg Center re-open, all residents of Frederick County can partake in live performing arts regardless of their ability to pay.
Similar programs already exist at the Weinberg Center, for populations such as veterans and children suffering from catastrophic illnesses and their families. These are made possible thanks to generous partnerships with local organizations like the Delaplaine Foundation and the Community Foundation of Frederick County. Now the Community Outreach Committee at the Weinberg Center for the Arts wants to extend a similar opportunity to first responders, healthcare workers, front-line employees and any members of the Frederick community who are experiencing economic setbacks due to COVID-19.
