Artist Emergency Relief Fund - Augusta Cultural Arts Consortium
This Artist Emergency Fund is to help self-employed/contract artists of all disciplines (visual, literary, performance, etc.) in the CSRA recover income lost due to the cancellation of a specific scheduled gig or opportunity (commission, performance, contract) due to Coronavirus/COVID-19 precautionary measures.
Artists can request up to $500 to compensate for cancelled work that was scheduled and lost.
The Artist Emergency Relief Fund was initiated by representatives of a special consortium of local arts non-profits, who met to discuss the impact of Covid-19 and its negative effect upon local Gig-Artists, contracted, or self-employed artists of all disciplines including visual, musical, literary, performance, etc. The grants will allow artists to recover income lost due to the cancellation of a specified scheduled gig or business opportunity (commission, performance, contract) due to mandated Coronavirus/COVID-19 precautionary measures. Artists are encouraged to apply for up to $500 compensation for work that was scheduled and lost, due to Covid-19 shutdowns.
The Augusta Arts Consortium was able to disburse $24,370 to local artists in the first 2 weeks. The consortium will continue to receive applications and grant funds as funds allow. There are still funds available!
