Right now, 62% of arts and cultural workers are entirely unemployed, including more than 69% of Black and Indigenous artists and artists of color. Creative workers face an average individual loss of $22,000 in 2020.
In the spirit of coalition and resource sharing, NYC arts and cultural organizations of all sizes and structures continue to come together to grow a joint Cultural Solidarity Fund that provides $500 relief microgrants to NYC artists and cultural workers. Your participation and sponsorship will have a great impact!
To date, more than 200 organizations and individuals have come together to raise $125,000. We received an overwhelming 2,722 applications with 56% of applicants expressing dire need for food and housing funds, far outpacing the current funds available. We were able to to fund 9% of applicants and our new goal is to raise $300,000 by April 30th, to fund all priority applicants. Your support is needed.
In order to sponsor one or more artists/cultural workers (1 sponsorship = $500), please submit this form.
