Arts Impact Ohio Postponed

COVID-19 Response:

In accordance with State of Ohio directives banning large gatherings, and out of an abundance of caution, the Ohio Arts Council has made the decision to reschedule the 2020 Arts Impact Ohio conference and preconference, originally planned for May 6-8, 2020 in Akron, Ohio. We look forward to holding the two-day event in its entirety, including the one-day arts learning preconference, in Akron as planned, at the earliest viable date. We intend to include every one of the dozens of fantastic presenters, session leaders, performers, trips to local arts institutions, and exciting networking extras that we had originally planned for May.

This page will be updated as new details become available. Updates will also be shared via social media channels, and directly via email with attendees and registrants.

Registration Rollover/Refunds: If you have already registered for either the preconference or regular conference and would like to leave your registration in place, we will honor it in full when a new date for the conference is announced. If you have already registered and wish to request a full refund, you can do so by contacting Nicole Mullet at (Refunds will also be made available after the conference has been rescheduled).

Hotel Room Block: If you have already booked a room(s) at the Courtyard Akron Downtown within the OAC’s Arts Impact Ohio room block, please contact the hotel at 330-252-9228 at your earliest convenience to cancel this reservation. You may also cancel online at Go to “My Trips” at the top of the page and enter your confirmation number, travel date, and name. Your credit card will not be charged. Revised lodging details will be announced as soon as the rescheduled conference dates are available.

Stay tuned for updates. We look forward to visiting, celebrating, and learning with you very soon.
