The pandemic has put a strain on artists from every imaginable angle. Whether financial, mental or simply from a time management perspective, there is virtually no aspect of artists’ lives that has not been touched in some way by the increased strain of the pandemic. As we confront the difficult news of yet another – and perhaps the most pronounced – spike in the weeks and months ahead, it seems only fitting to bring you resources designed to help artists cope with the multi-faceted stresses of life during this difficult time. Below you will find links to webinars offered by Creative Capital covering a variety of COVID-related issues and how they relate specifically to the lives and livelihoods of creatives.
To be an artist is to always struggle to some extent. To be an artist during this historic and unprecedented time is to understand the true precariousness of the creative lifestyle. We hope that these resources will help as you continue to navigate these complex times.
