Shorten the Intermission Campaign


The arts and culture does not exist without our community. With the impact of COVID-19 adversely affecting so many aspects of our lives, we at One Columbia want to add our voice in helping the Midlands curb the spread. Shorten the Intermission is a campaign to encourage everyone to follow the guidelines during the pandemic and to help us keep the arts alive. This is why we need your help to spread the word and shorten the intermission.

Join us and support our campaign to #shortentheintermission, by using our social media graphics and tags available below. Let folks know what the arts mean to you and share the hashtag to amplify the goal of slowing the spread.
