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.

Hamburg Foundation Scholarship for the Politically Persecuted

Guidelines of assistance

Scholarships are given based on recommendations by relevant organizations and individuals. Occasionally, former guests of the foundation, who are well aware of what is going on in their own country, also nominate people in need of protection.


According to the Hamburg Foundation, "Democracy feeds off free press, free arts, free literature, and photography." Because of this, and the group's proximity to individuals affected by the Holocaust, the group is committed to human rights and free speech. Grants are provided to those recommended by organizations of high status.
