All of the effort for this campaign has been done pro-bono, in service to artists and the community.


Many in the arts community face unmanageable financial loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These individuals are integral to the fabric of our communities and cultures; in fact, artists are the heartbeat of our communities. They are on the front lines of serving the hearts and minds of people all around the world.

Artists are independent workers. Many have lost significant income due to work such as commissions, performances, exhibitions, workshops, and classes that were scheduled and lost, and there is great uncertainty about how much of this will come back in a timely manner.

Gathering groups together is VITAL for artists, arts organizations and the arts ecosystem – all of which will suffer as long as Stay-At-Home and Social Distancing measures are required for public health concerns.
