bushCONNECT Postponed

May 12, 2020

After considering many factors related to COVID-19, we have decided to postpone bushCONNECT from Fall 2020 to Fall 2021. We sincerely appreciate all of our programming and recruitment partners working with us to make this change, and we are excited about what we’ll do together in 2021! We may offer content or connection in some smaller ways yet this year – please stay tuned.

We will redirect some of the bushCON 2020 budget to our COVID-19 response funding. In the spirit of bushCON, and knowing that the creative community has been hit especially hard by event cancellations and that they are using their many talents to enable innovative problem-solving, the Bush Foundation has committed $250,000 of its response dollars to support artists and culture bearers.

See our full list of COVID-19 resources at this link. We encourage everyone to continue to check in with your networks and support one another in safe and appropriate ways. We look forward to being together again soon.
