Drawing from an ongoing longitudinal study of career outcomes for arts managers in Greater Boston following the Covid-19 pandemic, this paper will outline preliminary findings at a point two years from the outset of the pandemic. In collaboration with ArtsBoston, the Boston University Arts Administration Program is examining individual arts professionals' career outcomes immediately after and over the course of the region's recovery. From a large sample drawn from over 900 nonprofit arts organizations in greater Boston, the study traces the subsequent career trajectories of individual arts managers who were employed by these organizations in February 2020.
