In a pandemic, it’s hard not to feel vulnerable. And while things can seem scary with so many uncertainties ahead, we want you to know that we’re working very hard to help you get what you need to get through this most difficult of times.
Broward Cultural Division is committed to supporting the local arts and culture community and we’ll be continually sharing important information and resources with you. Please be sure to review the information below, which includes several links to local and national funding sources.
