Arts Leaders of Color Emergency Fund.
As we maneuver to address COVID-19, there has and will be a huge economic impact on the arts community, especially individual and teaching artists of color.
Arts Administrators of Color Network has set up the Arts Leaders of Color Emergency Fund which folks can donate directly to in support of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) artists AND administrators (consultants, facilitators, box office staff, seasonal/temporary employees, etc.) who have been financially impacted due to COVID-19. Creatives practicing and teaching their art as well as the administrators who are supporting that art will without a doubt need our financial support to weather this unexpected and uncertain storm.
Artist Relief Tree.
The current global health crisis is having a severe impact on arts and culture. Performances and productions have been canceled for months, causing many artists to lose economic and social stability.

Unfortunately we cannot hope to replace artists’ entire fees or lost work, but we wish to provide hope, make a small difference, and show solidarity with colleagues and friends.
