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

Dancers and choreographers who are paying members of an FIA union in their home country are entitled to free assistance on a number of issues ranging from information about auditions, access to training facilities, discounts, and legal advice.


The International Federation of Actors (FIA) is a global federation of performers’ trade unions, guilds, and professional associations representing several hundreds of thousands of performers with 90 member organizations in more than 60 countries around the world. FIA’s main purpose is to voice the professional interests of actors (in film, television, radio, digital media, theater, and live performance), broadcast professionals, dancers, singers, variety and circus artists, and others. A passport for the needs of dancers is also offered.
