Help available for freelance artists who have lost jobs
Are you a freelance member of the arts community who is struggling financially because of the coronavirus pandemic?
Or maybe you just appreciate local artists and want to help with a contribution or two?
Regardless of where you stand economically, check out https://covid19freelanceartistresource.wordpress.com, a website that aims to help artists of all disciplines, including musicians, actors, designers, producers, technicians, stage managers, composers, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, craft artists, teaching artists, dancers, writers, playwrights and photographers.
The website provides an aggregated list of free resources, opportunities and financial relief options available. The site stresses that "it isn't a place to promote individual artist practices (we love you, but we’re not equipped for that); a place to promote fee for service work; or a place to seek direct emergency funding.
We at InPlay Capital Region like this list; just think twice before you give out
information that could come back to haunt you.
