Many artists and arts organizations are currently faced with potentially irreparable losses due to the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak. With the national economy and public life ground to a halt, we understand the urgency of allocating critical resources to those in need in our communities. Artists and creatives are working together to sustain the cultural activities and creative projects that enrich all of our lives in unprecedented ways. It is essential that we support these efforts to strengthen our connections in spite of physical isolation. To this end, Fractured Atlas has put together a list of emergency resources for artists and arts organizations of all disciplines and designations. We encourage you to share these and to email us at email@example.com with updates or more resources that aren’t listed.
Every month, Fractured Atlas provides a list of upcoming grant opportunities for artists and arts-based projects. As a fiscal sponsor of 4000+ artistic projects, we provide access to grants for artists in every discipline. Are you new to grant-seeking? You should check out our grants webinar.
