Residency Requirement: National
In light of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the artist community, the Foundation for Contemporary Arts is creating a temporary fund to meet the needs of experimental artists who have been impacted by the economic fallout from postponed or canceled performances and exhibitions. If you are unsure about whether your work is experimental, you can see other artists we have supported on our Instagram and our website.
For as long as our Board of Directors determines it is necessary and prudent to do so, the Foundation will disburse $1,000 grants to artists who have had performances or exhibitions canceled or postponed because of the COVID-19 virus.
If you are looking for project-based support from our Emergency Grants Program you can find more information further down the page.
FCA anticipates far greater need than this fund will be able to accommodate. Below you will find three additional resource links. The first is a list of national resources for artists and arts organizations from the National Endowment for the Arts. The second is a list of COVID-19 resources for freelance artists that has been assembled by an independent group of artists and administrators. The third is a list of mutual aid resources for artists living in New York in case you or someone you know is immunocompromised or otherwise at-risk and in need of assistance with grocery or supply delivery or other services.
