Artist Emergency Relief Fund Application

We encourage working artists in the Greater Greensboro area in need of support due to cancellations from the outbreak of COVID-19 to fill out this application. This fund is a money-in, money-out fund. ArtsGreensboro will disperse funds weekly, based on the amount donated.  This fund is directed to working artists, not organizations or nonprofits. 
  • • North Carolina is my home base and geographic focus. • I am at least 18 years of age. • I am not currently enrolled in a degree program (e.g. Bachelor’s or Master’s; if pursuing a Ph.D., coursework must be completed). • I am experiencing financial loss and/or hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. • I am an artist working in any one of the following disciplines: Dance, Film & Media Arts, Interdisciplinary, Literary Arts, Music, Teaching Arts, Theater, and Visual Arts/Design. • I am capable of providing examples of creative work made within the last two years
  • Please add a link to your artist website page or social media profile (Facebook, Instagram, etc.)
    NOTE: Depending on funding levels and amount of requests, priority may be given to artists from communities that have been historically and systemically economically disadvantaged in the Greater Greensboro Area: BIPOC artists, transgender & nonbinary artists, and disabled artists - but we will try to help as many artists in need in as we can.
  • NOTE: If you had to cancel because you are disabled/immunocompromised, please also respond 'yes' and specify in your event/commission description below.
  • For those whose losses are not a result of cancellations, please detail a reasonable estimation of the week to week lost art-related income based on your current circumstances.
  • Please upload a confirmation of the cancellation of the event/commission. This can be a screenshot of an email, event website, or any other communication indicating that the event/commission has been canceled.
  • Answer in whole dollar amounts only.
