Residency Requirement: New York, NY

Funding Amount: Unclear

We’re a group of low-income artists in NYC raising money to support other artists and freelancers like us who are taking financial hits as a result of closures and lost income from Covid-19. Our intention is to collectively raise funds to provide emergency and preventative resources to those at financial risk as our government is doing little to protect our well-being.

We seek to provide support for low-income, BIPOC, trans/GNC/NB/Queer artists and freelancers whose livelihoods are being effected by this pandemic in NYC. Whether it’s from cancelled gigs, lost jobs, or a lack of business due to coronavirus scares, we hope to orchestrate an egalitarian approach to crowdsourcing.

Those that fill out our survey for funding will be awarded money within a few days of their application depending on the state of our funds. The more funding we receive, the more money we can provide to more people. The survey enables us to collect payment information to reach more people. The goal is to provide everyone who reaches out with funding.

Please consider donating or sharing if you are unable to give at this time.

*****Hey All – We just hit 500 surveys, 500 people in NYC who are self identifying as needing support – in order to ensure that everyone who has “applied” thus far receives funds we are going to pause survey intake for now. We are hoping that the momentum of the fundraiser picks-up and that we can make enough to reopen the surveys within the week. For those of you who have already “applied,” we will be informing you re: distribution of funds by the end of next week (3/20)*****

**We are proud to be in solidarity with the Indie Theater Fund and help spread the work that they are doing for theater organizations and individuals effected by the pandemic. If you are a theater artist in NYC, please visit their fundraiser here .**
