Learn how you can support artists during the COVID-19 health crisis to ensure a vibrant and robust recovery when we can finally gather in our community galleries, concert halls, and theaters.
You can still support artists in the meantime to ensure a vibrant and robust recovery when we can finally gather in our community galleries, concert halls, and theaters. If you’re looking for ways to support the Boston-area arts scene, consider donating to one of these local or national relief funds.
Social distancing protects our community and loved ones from the spread of COVID-19, but these measures have created an immediate financial obstacle for local artists in Greater Boston. Shuttered theaters and venues, restrictive limits on gathering sizes, and abrupt closures of restaurants and retailers have cut tours short and limited sources of vital income.
Artist Relief is a national fund that provides $5,000 grants for practicing U.S. artists experiencing financial emergencies. The fund also serves as an ongoing informational resource and works to identify and address the needs of artists moving forward. Donate Now.
