We face unprecedented times. No one can predict the outcome nor the course that things will take as we ride the tsunami of this global pandemic. Now more than ever, we must band together as an artistic community, support on another in any way we can, and above all we must prepare, not panic. Below find a list of organizations that offer emergency funding to artists based on varied criteria. Please note that we cannot guarantee that every one will be accepting applications if volume increases.
Foundation for Contemporary Artists
I Care if you Listen COVID-19 Emergency Fund
Finally, New York Foundation for the Arts has compiled a list of emergency funding – some of which might be also named here – you can find it by clicking here
We are in this together. While it may sound cliche, Praxis Center exists to support artist in every step of their careers. For better or worse, we are your constant companion and if there are resources you would like to see in the coming weeks and months, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we would be more than happy to do whatever we can to find them. Be healthy, be safe.
