The Missouri Arts Council promotes COVID-19 safe practices by arts and cultural organizations statewide when the arts reopen under local guidelines. Together with a coalition of organizations throughout the state, we have created Missouri ArtSafe Certification. Organizations become certified by pledging and adhering to a core level of safe practices.
4 Steps to Register
1. Train your frontline staff and volunteers using the training video in the best practices for COVID-19 safety. Link to video
2. Apply the Universal Measures, as modified by the changes to the protocols as of May 28, 2021, to your organization's COVID-19 practices. Link to universal measures. Link to protocols May 28 changes.
3. Develop your own plan for safe practices and publish it online. VLAA has an excellent resource on developing a plan with samples here. They also produced a useful plan template. Also use STLartsresources.org and existing plans on Missouri ArtSafe for reference.

Once your organization is accepted, you may promote your efforts to create safely, present safely, and attend safely with the Missouri ArtSafe logo and designation.
