What Are We Striving to Do?

The recent global health crisis has had a huge impact on the arts industry. Artists, musicians, and performers dependent on live events and face-to-face interactions have been without their main source of income for months, and it is uncertain when (and if) they will be able to resume their livelihood as normal.

We need to come together as a community to give back to these artists, musicians, and performers, who contribute so much to the joy, vibrancy, and quality of our lives and culture.

The Artist Relief Project calls on the support and generosity of those in the greater community with the means to help. Donations support artists in any discipline, who have been directly impacted by event cancellations and venue closures. The funds raised offer relief to artists in the short term in the form of emergency cash grants and in the long term in the form of programs and resources to support their continued pursuit of a successful career in the arts.

Who is Eligible for Support?

Any individual artist in any discipline whose income has been impacted by cancellations and closures may request support.
The only requirements are that you must be able to demonstrate (1) you are an artist actively working and committed to pursing the arts as a career and (2) you have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

To take advantage of ARP’s free programs and resources, you must be an ARP member (membership is free and open to artists in any discipline). Request membership via the ARP Membership Request form on the Programs page.

To inquire about financial support specifically, fill out a request using the Request Support link at the top of the page.

The forms ask some basic questions, such as how you’ve been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, and for some basic documentation, such as a resume and/ or website to demonstrate your status as a working artist, musician, or performer.

COVID19 Crisis Relief project for impacted artists by Artly World Nonprofit

Artly World is a registered 501c3 nonprofit with the mission to empower communities through creative arts opportunities and initiatives. We support artists, musicians, and performers by providing professional development programs and beneficial opportunities for them to share their craft with a broader audience. We help make the arts accessible to all by providing arts and music programming free of charge in underserved communities.

When Artly World realized the devastating impact that COVID-related cancellations and closures were having on the arts community, we organized Artist Relief Project as an initiative to support artists who continue to be professionally and financially impacted by the crisis.
