ARTISTS: MON. MAY 4 DEADLINE for Artists Relief and Artists Respond Grants

ARTISTS: Mon. MAY 4 is the deadline for applying for the ARTISTS RELIEF and the ARTISTS RESPOND grants from the CT Office of the Arts.

The Connecticut Artists Relief Fund provides $500 grants to some 120 individual artists and teaching artists who live in the state and whose creative practices and incomes are being adversely impacted by the safety measures put into place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.  The grant is partly funded by the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA). Guía de Instrucciones en Español.

The Connecticut Artists Respond Grant helps artists translate and present their art virtually. Individual or collaborative artists who create, or have created, projects that respond to the needs of the times by presenting arts activities, classes or other creative experiences online, at no cost to the public, will be eligible for $1,000 (individual) or $2,000 (collaborative) grants.
