Westside Thrives COVIDeo Series

The WCDC has partnered with ArtSci Ventura to create the Westside Thrives COVIDeo Series. The purpose of the series is to promote Avenue-area business that have been able to open and to learn how they have adapted their business practices to meet the challenge of the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Is your business open?  – We want everyone to know! 

How has your business adapted? – We want to learn from you!

Westside businesses are being creative and resourceful in meeting safety guidelines and serving their customers during the COVID crisis. We are inviting all Avenue-area businesses, whether store or home-based, to share your story of adapting. Send us video of your business operations and we will promote your efforts through our newsletter and through social media
