Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we hope you are all safe and healthy.
Please note that at this time, the Sustainable Arts Foundation does not have the capacity to offer COVID-19 emergency funds.
COVID-19 has made a significant impact on artist residencies, whose programs are characterized by gathering together in community. Because these programs are particularly challenged at this time, we will be supporting them once again in 2021 with an application process in the fall of 2020.
