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 250 organizations and individuals have come together to raise over one million dollars. 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. There are still 385 people left on the waitlist for funds.
In order to sponsor one or more artists/cultural workers (1 sponsorship = $500), please submit this form.
