​Statement Regarding COVID-19 to Our Members, Partners, and Creative Industry Community

On behalf of the Association For Creative Industries (AFCI) Executive Committee and staff, we extend our deepest concern and support for our members, colleagues and partners who are impacted by the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation.

Crafting and creative activities bring people together, enrich lives, and support economic growth in local and global communities. When a situation such as COVID-19 occurs, the effects are felt by all of us.

AFCI continues to monitor the developments of COVID-19 and its impact. We will continue to serve you and the creative industries during these unprecedented times, and are committed to sharing useful resources and information for our members and colleagues, including:

Our industry has weathered disruptions in the past. Working together, we will weather this, too. We help bring people together in ways that have a lasting impact. That will certainly continue.

If there is anything that we can do, please let us know.


Peter Finn
Executive Director, AFCI
