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

To apply or to nominate a candidate, send a letter that provides publishing history and explains need together with a resume and, if available, a writing sample (preferably in English) of creative work by the candidate to Literary Arts.


The International Writers Project at Brown University provides institutional, intellectual, artistic, and social support to writers who face personal danger and threats to their livelihood in nations throughout the world. Each academic year, the project sponsors a resident fellowship for one writer who feels unable to practice free expression at home. A 10-month fully funded living stipend and office is provided.
