UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19: Please note that the Artists at Risk Connection (ARC) is not a grantmaking program and is unable to assist artists financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, because we recognize the growing effect that the pandemic is having on artists, we have compiled a growing list of resources for artists affected by COVID-19 and hope that you may find assistance there. Please refer to the "Stories" page to find the list. If you are an artist or cultural practitioner otherwise at risk because of your creative practice, please follow the directions below to contact us.

Please fill out the form to get in touch with us. Submissions are encrypted and ARC understands that your communications are confidential.

Guidelines of assistance

Action for Hope's programs were established to help meet the social, cultural, and psychological needs of distressed and displaced communities. Specific guidelines vary by program.


Action for Hope was founded to provide cultural development and cultural relief programs that meet the social, cultural, and psychological needs of distressed and displaced communities. It believes in the role of arts and culture in empowering individuals and communities, particularly those in distress. They work on cultural projects distributed among three main axes; Community-Based Cultural Interventions; New artist, New voices; and Networking, Dialogue, and Research.
