The Voice of the Arts

COVID-19 Update

Dear Conejo Valley Arts Community,


During this difficult time, as our community is learning to deal with suddenly different working and living conditions, the Arts Council of the Conejo Valley would like to share with you steps we have taken in response to the COVID-19 health crisis. The ACCV sends all of you our very best wishes and thoughts and hopes you are staying safe and healthy.


First, we want to let you know that we will be available to you, our member organizations to assist in any way we can. We’d like to start by asking you:    

- How are you?

- What creative solutions during this COVID-19 season have you come up with?

- What help could be meaningful to you?

- Do you have any advice for other members or organizations you know of that are in need?


We’d like to gather this information to share with all of our members so that we can learn from each other as we manage through this crisis. Please respond if you can at my email below.


Second, due to the COVID-19 gathering restrictions, we are postponing and rescheduling all ACCV events originally scheduled through the end of May. They include:

  • “I Have A Story” Galleria Artists Reception (originally scheduled March 28)

  • Legacy Scholarship Reception – (originally scheduled April 25) The application deadline, which was extended, is now closed. Scholarship winners will be notified of their awards in time to be applied to the 2020-2021 academic year.

  • Arts Community Express events scheduled through May

  • Conejo Cottontail events

  • Conejo Arts Jubilee (originally scheduled May 18)


New dates will be announced once determined. Please feel free to reach me with any questions at 805.358.3708 or


We know this health crisis will resolve over time and look forward to when we can all gather together and experience all of the arts as a community again. Keeping our arts groups encouraged during this crisis will benefit everyone during the recovery that lies ahead.
