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

The organization offers residencies for artists in exile. The organization covers the cost of transport of the artists and their works, accommodation (4 rooms), and artistic production material. While artists are in their residency, they can produce, exhibit, sell work, and run workshops. The organization does not take commissions on sales.


The organization receives artists in exile for one-month artist residencies for three to four months a year. Since June 2018 they accepted close to 40. It is a private initiative and takes place in a house the founder built in Saint-Briac sur Mer (Ille et Vilaine, France).
