The Boston Artist Relief Fund will award grants of $500 and $1,000 to individual artists who live in Boston whose creative practices and incomes are being adversely impacted by Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
With events of all types being canceled to reduce the spread of COVID-19, people who make income partially or fully through gigs and freelance work are losing critical opportunities to support their well-being in our city.
How to Support
We will be modifying the Opportunity Fund to best address the current needs of artists whose creative practices and incomes are being adversely impacted by COVID-19. Beginning on Thursday, March 12, the Opportunity Fund application will reopen as the Boston Artist Relief Fund.
Through a partnership with Boston Center for the Arts, individuals can donate to the Artist Relief Fund.
