As a part of our ArtConnect Program, the HV Arts Council coordinates and posts resources, opportunities and news that is useful and informative for artists.
Artists have been profoundly affected by the COVID-19 crisis. In addition to the dangers posed by the pandemic itself, many in our community face unemployment, the loss of freelance income, and unexpected expenses.
The HV Arts Council is assembling COVID-related resources and information to assist artists in these difficult times. Click on the titles to be redirected to the grant/fund website for more details. Check back periodically as new items will be added periodically.
If you are aware of additional items to post, please email them or their links to: firstname.lastname@example.org
