Help fellow artists
When all this first happened I was like “Yo cool extended Spring Break” and now I’m like “Shit this sucks”.
And I say that for so many reasons. From lack of interaction with my fellow creatives (y’all), those who I love most (also y’all), and also from witnessing how this is affecting people are sick, dying, and who are now out of work. Since Covid-19 got serious I got hired at my internship with Houston Arts Alliance (HAA) to research funding, grants, and resources that artists can take advantage of during all this BS. (really sad music is playing as I write this so I may become more emotional as I write) but things have become more real for me and I’m understanding how this is really affecting people.
I write all this to bring to light that there are many resources for artists out there who are struggling to make ends meet so please share them, donate to them, and take advantage of them if you or your loved ones are hurting and are eligible to apply.
Below are some google docs I have created that have a ton of resources for various artists. I encourage you again to donate and share if you can. Reach out to me if you have questions, please!
Below is also a link to donate directly to HAA’s artist relief fund as well.
