Today, a consortium of funders (see list below*) announced the creation of the Artist Relief, a $10 million national emergency relief fund for artists and creative workers that will provide $5,000 no-strings-attached grants. It is intended for anyone who earns income from their creative or artistic practice and who has also been affected by COVID-19. Artists or creative workers who have been negatively impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis should visit the Artist Relief webpage and funding application, which includes a COVID-19 Impact Survey for Artists and Creative Workers designed by Americans for the Arts.
