We are so thankful for our community’s outpouring of love through the Lane County Artist Relief Fund over the past month. Community members have given generous donations, friends have helped us spread the word, and artists have received critical support as they continue to face canceled gigs, closed markets and galleries, and financial insecurity.
Lane Arts Council created the Lane County Artist Relief Fund to aid individual artists who have lost work during the pandemic. Funding will be distributed to as many qualifying artists as possible, including visual artists, performing artists, literary artists, and event production workers.
Many more artists have applied than we are able to fund, so your donation is essential for providing relief to artists who are urgently in need. With your help, we can help to stabilize our local artists and ensure they will have the foundation to continue their creative work, now and into the future.
It will take the entire community to ensure that our creative sector survives this challenging time and can thrive again. Please help our local artists weather this storm so they can continue to make impactful, creative contributions in our community and in the world.
To make a donation, visit bit.ly/LaneArtistRelief. We hope you will share this cause widely in support of our local artists.
Applications are now closed for the Lane County Artist Relief Fund. For any artists who have submitted applications and are currently waiting in our queue, you will be awarded as funds become available. Thank you, all, for your support of this important effort.
