As we continue to navigate these uncertain times due to the detrimental impact of COVID-19, many artists across all disciplines have found themselves without work altogether or with a substantial part of their income gone.
The Creative Impact: Capital Region Artist Fund was created to help alleviate some of the financial stress many are enduring. Payments to artists will be in the form of $100 Visa Gift Cards and will continue to be distributed to artists until funds have been depleted. The more that is raised, the more that can be given to artists. If you are wondering what you can do at this time, please give what you can to support artists in financial distress. Text “CREATIVEIMPACT” to 91999 to get a link to our contribution page.
The Creative Impact: Capital Region Artist Fund is presented by Acting with Aaron, Albany Barn, Albany Center Gallery, The Arts Center of the Capital Region, Collectiveffort, Creative Action Unlimited, D. COLIN, Youth FX, with support from Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region & United Way of the Greater Capital Region.
An individual artist from the four counties of Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga, and Schenectady who is suffering financial losses due to canceled events and projects because of the COVID-19 pandemic, in all disciplines, is invited to apply. (i.e. performances, readings, workshops, gigs, commissioned work, or other like opportunities).
