As we maneuver to address COVID-19, there has and will be a huge economic impact on the arts community, especially individual and teaching artists of color.
Arts Administrators of Color Network has set up the Arts Leaders of Color Emergency Fund which folks can donate directly to in support of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) artists AND administrators (consultants, facilitators, box office staff, seasonal/temporary employees, etc.) who have been financially impacted due to COVID-19. Creatives practicing and teaching their art as well as the administrators who are supporting that art will without a doubt need our financial support to weather this unexpected and uncertain storm.
All money raised will be distributed to BIPOC individual artists/teaching artists who have meet the requirements as stated in the application form. At this time, the emergency fund is only for arts leaders of color based in the United States.
For more information: If you are a BIPOC artists or administrators in financial need, please access this application form to understand how we plan to distribute funds and apply for any available money that is generated.
