It is an extremely challenging time for our local creative sector.

Artists are among those most impacted by new social isolation measures. As arts events and programs are canceled and public spaces are closed, artists are feeling financially insecure and uncertain of what the future holds. Many artists have told us they are struggling financially and are worried it is going to get worse.

Our beloved creative sector is at risk, and artists are the most vulnerable.

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. 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.
