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. ARC does not provide direct services, but we will do our best to refer you to organizations that do. You can also find help by exploring our network of resources.

Your message is end-to-end encrypted and will be marked as urgent. You have the option to write this message in Arabic, English, French, Mandarin, Russian or Spanish. Expect a reply within 72 hours.

Guidelines of assistance

Arts Equator publishes pieces on from artists who wish to amplify their campaigns or causes. They can also connect you to residencies and opportunities in Southeast Asia. You can email Arts Equator directly for more information and assistance.


Arts Equator is an independent media organisation and brings together information, articles, events and ideas from Southeast Asia into one carefully curated site. As a platform, they are interested in the region’s creative practices – performance, literature, visual culture, fashion, film and more. They also serve as an impactful digital resource (Lobang) to share opportunities for grants and residencies for artists exploring intersections of people, community, art and politics in the region.
